    This DYI describes how to mount a Stebel Horn on a KGT 1300.

    The Horn and Mount Kit was obtained from http://www.excelcyclewerkes.com/
    (No affiliation, just used his product)

    Other reference material in addtion to the provided installation instructions is this pictorial from the werks site link

    I reviewed the instructions and documented the process of installation.

    The Scope of Work entails the following:

    • Remove Left/Right/Top Fairing Plastics
    • Remove air intake snorkel and access horn connection
    • Prep Mounting bracket and area for compressor
    • Mount horn
    • Wire relay and compressor
    • Dress wire harnesses
    • Test
    • Re-assemble


    Special Note - I have a Centech Fuse Panel so I did not mount the provided fuse carrier and fuse.

    Accessing the Horn connection

    The green arrow highlights the location of the horn connector you need to access to set up the trigger for the air horn.

    This is on the throttle side of the bike, below the mid way point of the air snorkle intake.

    As it is so conjested I decided to remove the air snorkle intake for access.

    The computer needs to be unmounted and set out of the way.

    There are two screws and one clip on mount.

    The first is shown below
