Horn

Who else has pressed the horn button and been too embarrassed by the squeak to ever do that again?

I have the Stebel Nautilus Compact on my GS and have just ordered one for the XR.

Anyone fitted one & if so, is there a video or even a start at a location? I haven't had mine long enough to start stripping it down yet.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Horn

I installed a Denali Soundbomb Split Dual Tone horn on my XR. Slightly different to the Stebel, but does fit quite nicely.

Re: Horn

Thanks Simon. Your video was very useful & really should have made my own.

Fitted the Stebel Nautalis Compact which was quite a squeeze.

Also fitted a set of Clearwater Darlas with a beak mount & a Billie Jnr Brake light while I had all the panels off.

Fixed the fuel filler so it fills nice and quickly as well and awaiting my radiator & oil cooler screens before I finish reassembly.
