Stebel Nautilus Installed!

Well, a buddy of mine and I got my new Stebel air horn up and running on my bike this weekend (what I really mean to say there is that my buddy did most of the work getting it mounted and wired while I supervised, drank coffee, "helped", and asked stupid questions turning what I'm sure that he could have done in two hours into a four-hour ordeal). While I'm sure that I could have pulled it off, I would likely have mounted the horn to the front of the bike, merely replacing the horns that came stock. Instead, my buddy mounted the Stebel just beneath the extended turn signal bracket on the right rear of the bike with a piece of angle-iron (I spray painted the angle-iron myself!). "We" tapped into the wires coming off of one of the horns up front to tie into the horn button. There's even a bridge there now so that when I hit the horn button, not only do both of my original horns sound, but the Stebel does as well! The relay is located just behind the right side cover.

The great thing about it is that most of the horn "hides" behind my saddlebag, but leaves the sound path for the horn unobstructed. The horn is thus protected without muffling the sound. I'm pretty jazzed. Pics included below...

Nice looking job there, that is a real loud horn, I hooked mune the same way, both stock and the extra works. You did run a separate power wire to the horn from the relay to the batt correct. You get the most sound from the horn that way.

Yep. It comes right off of the battery to the relay (with a fuse in-line), then the relay to the horn.
