Horn re-location

Hi,

Have recently install some B&B radiator guards, i must say they are top quality! Only downfall is that the horn can not be mounted in the same position as before (bottom right radiator)

So my questions is where else can i mount it? Theres no room behind the headlight for it...

Any ideas?


Thanks

Re: Horn re-location

Have you thought about simply eliminating the horn?

Re: Horn re-location

How about making an aluminum bracket, and bolting it on with the lower fork bracket bolts? I would also replace the horn with something that doesn't sound like you've stepped on a mouse. That's the first thing I did to my 570. Now it goes "honk" instead of "eeeeeep."

With BPB radiator protector it works in the same place using OEM horn bracket

Re: Horn re-location

Here is my horn mount. It faces sideways, which helps keep mud and water out.

I tried to mount the horn behind the number plate on my FE, but could not make it fit. I suspect there is room on the FX, but the FE is pretty crowded in there. Of course, I added LED blinkers with the flasher mounting behind the headlight, grip heater wires, and key switch wire, so my front end is really cramped.

Re: Horn re-location

Deeg,
I have an FE as well It's a tight fit but there's a hole just to the right of one of the plug harness brackets IIRC that I used. I had a harder time mounting my key switch so yes not much room. You have a proper pilots cockpit with all your goodies added on

I also have grip heater wires/control unit, keyswitch and an adapter for the map switch in there. It's just a case of re-arranging and tidying the OE wiring behind the headlight with zip ties etc. so it takes up less room and leaves some for the extras.
