None noted but only 80 miles of paved 40 degree riding since the install. I bought my kit from Sierra BMW after stumbling across this, http://www.motorcycleparts-hornig.co...ebel-Horn.html

Notice it will only fit ESA equipped models where the ESA module is on the side. It was kind of bitch to install, but I did not remove the tank. I put a diode between the coil of a weatherproof relay and mounted the relay on a left silver bracket at the front of the Adventure trim panel, which is also a great ground point! Arg camera battery just died...pic to follow...

The location of the relay:


View of the horn. The bracket is attached to the nut on the horn and goes back to the original horn mount. (Working blind it is a T-30 bolt on the original horn).



I hope this is not too much for the original intent of this thread.

How did you keep the plastic shavings out of the tank?

36K service, which is all fluids including brakes, valves, alternator belt and throttle body sync.









A little corrosion repair as well.

Jim

PS I will be posting a pictorial on the servo-ABS flush soon!

Dunno if yours is different in the States, but mine is metal. By taking off the filler cap and tank plastic you can pull up the neck piece still attached to the pipework, wrap the whole lot in a towel before drilling. I also used a magnet to catch bits. Blow it off with air and remove the towel. Very straightforward 20 minute job.

Can you post a photo of where you drilled? Maybe I'm looking at the wrong place. The plastic part I'm referring to is the orange part under the fuel cap, the filler neck. Thanks...

The newer bike has a different filler opening and neck. I have not seen the mod done on it, but it is doable from what I have heard.

600 mile service done at 667

Got them to order the part because my Rear Brake does not work at all
Fitted the 'Accelerator'

So far with 667 miles on, the bike has been in the shop..3 times now?
Luckily my warranty ends in September
