Decided to order an air horn for my ST1300 yesterday so thanks Shiney for the "How to do", I'm sure it will be very helpful!  :-++

I knew it was going to be a fairly big job to install but after seeing your guide I'm half wishing I hadn't bothered buying one...lol.
Nevermind, it's ordered now so when it arrives I'll have to get my bum into gear...eventually... :grin

I bought this one: https://items.marco.it/en/products/air-horns/tornado-compact-twin-tone-horn-with-integrated-compressor.html

I guess time will tell if it's any better (or worse) than the Stebel & Bad Boy...

The Tornado looks like it'll do the job and the install isn't hard (just take your time and you'll be fine) :thumbs

If you have any questions or run into any issues just post a reply and myself or someone else will be happy to help :thumbsup

Cheers

Dont forget to use a relay to operate the airhorn, and not power it straight off the existing horn wiring. Airhorns can draw 20+ amps..

Thanks for the heads up, Brock...  :thumbs

I believe the air horns I've ordered come with a relay.
I did fit air horns to my ol' CX500EC years ago and used a relay then...They were twin trumpet ones with separate compressor.
Bit bulky but it was easier to fit those back then as my CX had a 3/4 turbo style fairing with plenty of space behind it... 8)

I did talk about the relay in the instructions but I didn't have any pics of just the relay :think1   I'll add some close up pictures of the relay to make it easier :thumbsup

As I recall, I used the mount hole the old horn was on for my relay attach point.
Just make sure the relay case is watertight because it's vulnerable there.  DAMHIK!

Just on the off chance that the air horn stops working I would easily be able to restore the original horn until a replacement air horn could be installed.

It's hard enough grabbing the one horn when you need to give a blast, let alone having to decide which one is appropriate!

Looks like I'll be waiting a while before I get my air horns...
I checked my order and for whatever reason, they are being returned to the seller part way through shipping...  :fp
Once they arrive they will then refund me my money. but that will be another 2-10 business days...Not Happy, Jan!!!

Would have been nice to have been notified that there was an issue... :||||

Just an update....
I eventually got a refund but decided in the meantime to buy another Marco Tornado from a different seller.
This turned up today so now I just need to get enough motivation to install it.  :grin

I've also bought some brake fluid and a brake bleeding kit as I figured it made sense to do both whilst I have the fairing off.

...... whilst I have the fairing off.

Good luck!!  I had trouble with the fairing removal, little plastic rivets, some brittle & difficult to remove without damaging them, around $2.50 to $4.00 each to replace.  And it took me best part of 1/2 a day to remove and re-fit. :cuss

Pick the brain of Garry_Coates, he mentioned on Saturday (I think he said) 4 minutes to remove and 7 minutes to re-fit, I suppose that's each side..

Thanks Michael!  :thumbsup

I had the fairing off last year when I fitted my "SpeedoHealer". It took me all afternoon to fit it then... :-[
Hopefully it won't take me quite as long to take the fairing off & reinstall it next time as I at least have a bit more of an idea of what I'm doing...
As for the plastic rivet thingys, I bought some before I did the SpeedoHealer, just in case...  :grin

I do remember I lost a lot of time because I messed up the order of the bolts..What a pain in the bum that was... :fp

As for Garry, all I can say is wow! Are you sure he wasn't actually quoting the time in hours & not minutes???  :rofl

Anyhow, to be honest, I'll probably end up leaving the "install" to later in the year when things are a bit quieter...and cooler...

Cheers  :beer

A few days ago I undertook the installation of a Stebel Nautilus air horn in Rubina.  I had already installed the MCC Cruise Control, the current version of which has the electronic actuator.
The actuator unfortunately crowds out the space we used to put the Stebel in so I had to mount the horn lower, on the same hole the original horn uses.
That works, in that it fits inside the cowl, but it prevents the inner cowl from being fitted.  That in itself isn't a problem because a few owners remove the two inner panels in the belief it improves the airflow hence giving the rider a cooler ride in summer.
This is what the installation looks like:



We used to put the relay on that hole but I had a failure of a relay there due to water ingress.  Of course its waterproofing can be improved, but in any case, I mounted the relay above the horn.  That's the red box.  If you look really hard, to the right of that relay is the black relay for the LED driving lights.  Oh, and for Brookster, that blue wire attaches to the blue wire at the headlight for the LED relay trigger.  The high beam wire is blue on both headlights.
