Just Installed My New Stebel Nautilus Horn on My 2009
« on: November 08, 2017, 08:04:37 pm »
I had one of these on my old Ninja and it was loud as hell. This one seems ridiculously louder...which is AWESOME!

I used a ready made "Plug and Play" harness, with integrated fuse, relay, nicely terminated connectors, and a high quality casing. A well spent $24, I think.

I mounted the horn under the right ride black dash panel, using the old horn bracket, attaching the horn to the head of it and one leg of the "Y" onto a stud that has a 10mm nut on it, at the end of the metal cross brace for the fairing that bolts up near the mirror. It's perfectly hidden under the dash panel, perfectly upright, and well shielded from rain. I used some foam rubber between the horn and the wall of the right upper fairing, and beneath the horn, in case it wanted to rattle at all, though it's mounted nice and tight. I used Loc-tite on the threads. Then just ran the harness down to the battery. God, this thing is crazy loud. I can't wait to unleash its mad power on somebody. :-)

The right side, apart, with the horn in its mounting spot. Dash cover fits over it perfectly:

Nice work, and nice looking bike.
I'm a little jealous since you just trumped my wimpier horn install, but that
was by choice on my part.  Stebel is a bada$$ system.  :great:

This statement literally made me laugh out loud....

"I can't wait to unleash its mad power on somebody". :-)

Indeed, and HARUMPH!  :rotflmao:
