Load em up and it really feels like nothings there. I immediately noticed the lack of this design when I switched to a solid rack pannier setup.

Pic. Of how I mounted it. Used the oem mount. Just had to loosen it and reposition it to make the horn fit



And where I mounted the relay. Just used the original bolt.



All u needed was some wire to get back to the battery, an inline fuse, and a few connectors. Super simple. Didn't even take an hour.

Looks a little low. My fender goes almost all the way to the triple clamps when the suspension is compressed.

Fender doesn't hit on full compression? I had to split my Stebel to get the horn to fit up in there.

The pics are a little misleading The bike is. Strapped down to a trailer with suspension compressed. It barely hangs down past the beak. When its on

Must be a lower profile than Stebel.

Fiamm Horn on Roadie

I just mounted a Fiamm Highway horn (coincidentally the unit just recommended by Motorcycle Consumer News) on my Roadie.

Clearance is definitely an issue. I measured less than 1" clearance between the top of the fender and the bottom of the Roadie beak when the forks are fully compressed. Therefore, I had to modify the Fiamm horn but sound volume is barely affected:

Just out of curiosity, what was your method of fully compressing the forks? I was going to tackle that little project and measure some clearances myself.

Just remove the fork caps. Very easy. Support the bike underneath though or you wont get it back up.

Happened to me as well. Suggested I buy them for the 675. Not sure of they are the same levers or not.

I just ordered the set via ebay.

I did not compress the forks, have a simpler method:

I have a tie-wrap around one of the fork tubes. While off-roading, I've bottomed the forks and the top of the tie wrap was about 3/4" above the end of the fork tube.

So with the bike on the center stand, I measured the length of the fork tube below the female slider, subtracted 3/4" and then compared that dimension with the dimension from the bottom the beak to the top of the fender.

Seems a little messy, maybe a couple tie downs is in my future.

Dirt on the tubes gives me that. I want to see what it takes to get clearance and this isn't enough to figure out all the nooks and crannies. Thanks for the suggestion, but I want to experiment with things so the forks need to be bottomed.
