    Strebel Air Horn

    Just installed this horn on my 1994 R1100RS-had to make a new strap to hold it, but was worth the effort. This horn is LOUD! If you just do a short chirp, it's not too noticeable, but if you have to lay on it....it gets people's attention fast. Got really tired here on the East End of Long Island of our newest crop of summer residents who probably learned to drive in God knows where. People wandering from lane to lane having a mighty fine conversation on their cell phones. Anyway, if you're looking for something that no one will ignore, this is the one.

    My original Stebel Compact Nautilus died after about 4 years and 60K miles. I replaced it with a clone from Korea for about $26 delivered on eebay. I left the orginal relay and mount in place so the r/r was <10 minutes.

    Had one on my Vespa GTS250 and just installed one on my R1100R...sounds like a Mac truck. I thinks it's the single best safety investment one can make to their bike!

    Gladly...but bike is covered right now due to rain, I'll snap a shot later when the rain stops. Mounted it right where old horn was, under headlight, purchased "direct wire harness kit" which helped with install.

    Here are a couple of pics showing a Stebel on a 98 R1100Rt. I used the original horn mounting location. I removed the black plastic horn section from the body of the horn and was able to slip it onto the bike's left fork leg. It is held there with double sided tape and clear silicone caulking. Ran a black rubber hose to connect it to the horn body. Will take a couple of pics and post if any body is interested.

    Clearance

    Word of caution When installing between the forks vertically make sure you've got enough clearance when the forks are fully compressed. Great piece of equipment!
