Stebel Questions

1. Are these easy to mount?
2. Are these easy to wire to the VN 750's weak electrical system?

Thx!

That's the best price you can find for a new stebel nautilus horn...I bought mine this past summer for about the same price. It saved my ass on the way to work one day, big-time. I was in the left lane on the higway going about 70mph around a bend to the right and I noticed a cager look in his mirror briefly and start moving towards my space; moving a bit faster than him , I applied the brakes and the horn...that cage jerked the car right back to the right lane so fast, his tires were squeeling, I almost felt bad about using it.

1. Easy to install with only 1 bolt...I spent more time trying to figure out where to put it...ended up just below the right ear and above the engine guard using a left over footpeg clamp bent out to 90degrees from the lower ear bolt. I have about 1500 miles on it there. Be sure to use the relay or you will most likely melt the switch and harness.

2. I see my VM drop when I hit the horn, but it is only momentary, so I don't believe there would be a problem with it.

I blasted it out in the garage at work for a couple co-workers and one of them picked up one for his Smart car..(ps beware of how loud it is in a garage!)

Does the relay come in the "Deluxe" wiring kit or is that something I need to go out and buy additionally?

Thanks!

I know aren't they evil.

Ok, what is the consensus then. What looks better on a vn750, the chrome or black?

The relay is included...the deluxe wiring kit is just push on connectors and wire. I think I used 14gauge wire from an old stereo amp....use only the black wire if tying it to the frame...it looks nicer because it's harder to see.

I went with the black, because I didn't want it to bee "seen" too much...just my $0.02.

I have all 3 horns running...leave them there if you like them.
watch out for the front fender travel if putting the nautilus in front of the radiator...looked too tight and I didn't want to dent the fender and lose the horn on a panic stop.
