Where to put the Stebel Nautilus air horn
« on: February 17, 2019, 08:08:52 pm »
I could assemble / disassemble all the plastic on my old C10 in the dark with one hand tied behind my back, but.... I haven't taken any of the plastic off the C14 yet.  I ordered a Stebel Nautilus (I put one on my Valkyrie and loved it) and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions about where to mount it?  I'd like to tuck it away so it can be heard but not seen if possible.  It's 4.5 x 3.5 x 4.5".  Thanks for any ideas!
If you can't fix it, at least break it trying.

airhorn? stock location? explain with pictures,,,

maybe the stebel blaster?

many threads about "creative" locations, do a bit of a search, you'lle find them...
also find ome howing how to seperate the compressor, and horn, an hose them for better "split" mountings.....

just don't cut holes in your fairing, to "face the horn opening to the outside"... it really i not any "adder", a that horn is soooo loud it needs no special "aiming"... :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Thanks guys, I got lazy and it showed.  I did a search right after I posted and found a link to an excellent how-to on Twisted Throttle's webpage.

You'll also want to consider how much power the Nautilus draws in relation to future electrical Add Ons, and also whether or not you plan to install a Cruise Control Module.

Both of which will require more space and electrical compensation than other farkles.

I'm sure there's guys out there who have BOTH on their bikes, but the SPACE for both can be a challenging mod, even when splitting the Horn into two segments.

Just food for thought.

Hey AD,
For what its worth, attached are some pics of where I mounted my Stebel horn.  And, yes I looked at the TT picture and made my own bracket out of some flat steel bar I had lying around.  I was easy enough.  I use the PDM 60 to manage the several electrical connections on the Connie; the horn uses two of the PDM Circuits (you can pair them together to make a higher amp circuit for things like horns.  Another for the Denali's and a third for a little LED that I have over the clutch side control area so I can see the high/low beam switch and screen height buttons with winter gloves and in low light conditions.
Have fun!
