Replaced the horn. Seems like a nothing, but try commuting in heavy traffic without one - feel pretty naked. No shortage of morons on their phones, eating breakfast, applying makeup or lighting cigarettes when they should be driving. Yikes.

Sorted for a two day'er...

Got the RTT damper mounted with raised bars and 20 off. Swapped stock handguards with Fastway's Cycra bend. Custom fit PC skin for my Uni pre. Managed to fill 8.2 gallons between advtank and bloated stockers. Left out of the garage today on a "Peaks above the water" ride connecting to a "Lil Tuscany" section.

Put rim striping on it, orange reflective it's my first time doing this, so it's not perfect but I'm happy with the results :)

Yep, I replaced mine at the start of the season with one of those loud-ass Stebels. I think the POST beep of my computer was louder than the OEM horn

Interesting location - after installing the TT twin light setup, I had to mount the horn further up inside the fairing as the internal light frame leaves no room for anything. Will have to have a look at this spot. Assume the Stebel is a significant improvement?

The Stebel is really loud. I had purchased it last year but never installed it because it is so large and there was no place for it to go. This year, when I installed the TT lights, I was looking for a new location for the OEM horn and a freind pointed out that I had room for the Stebel now since the airbox is gone (Keihin 39mm FCRs with K&N filters).

I had been carrying it there for over a year without a problem, but I guess I had not had it on the bottom before. Fortunately, it was a cheapie, actually free with a coupon, so I'm not out anything. But, I will be sure to not put anything else heat sensitive on the bottom.

Tt hid

Does anybody know how to adjust the beam of the TT HID Hella projector low & high beam?

They are illuminating the top of the trees instead of the road
