Stebel Nautilus install pics .
« on: August 05, 2012, 07:32:56 pm »
Installed my stebel nautilus . Went well and used Murphs harness . After blowing the horn 3 or 4 times the inline 10 amp fuse will blow . Searching online it seems most people up that fuse to 15 amp to resolve this issue . Sound right to you guys ? I also wondered if the horn is grounded through the mount. I used a plastic spacer on the install which would interuppt the ground if so and can replace in if nessacary. Thanks in advance !

The  air pump has its own ground wire and that is all that is required. My fuse happens to be a 20amp but it runs the stebel  horn and driving lights. Your good to go.

Thanks man . Wonder why the harness comes with a 10 amp fuse ? Sounds like a lot of people had this issue .

I though a Stebil Nautilus sucked 18A when it was played. The Stebil HF80 models are 4.5A each for 9A total. But the Nautilus was twice that.

Ill try to post some up . I always have that sizing issue with photos. I removed my fairing pocket on the left side and used the mounting hole for the bottom of the pocket to mount the horn . It only fits one way but it was the right way as far as having the opening down . The harness worked great where it is....plug and play . Just followed Murphs instructions to hook up .I did have to take loose the gauge cluster to disconnect the

stockers and gettt at the connections

I did have to sacrifice the pocket on the left side but my 87 has the vinyl button cover over that pocket and I didn't use it much anyway . The cover buttoned right back on so its invisible .

Finally getting some pics up of my install. I'm pretty happy with it .As I said I did lose the left pocket but with the cover back on I can still hang my shades there so its all good .
