PostSubject: Stebel air horn?   Sat 17 Jun 2017, 10:52

Has anyone added a Stebel Air Horn? If so, where did you mount it? It seems to me that there is not enough space behind the forks to mount a Stebel, and it sure is too large to mount as a replacement in the original horn location.

So has anyone mounted added an air horn?

There's a topic about Stebel horns on Page 21 of Accessories and Modifications. I haven't read it, I just remember it from a few years ago.

Tim.......I've wanted to fit a louder horn for quite a while but as you say locations are tight. I've looked at the Denali Soundbomb Split. It has a separate compressor and trumpet allowing the compressor to be fitted in one location and the trumpet in another connected by the rubber tubing. One of my thoughts had been to fit the compressor under the l/h footboard and the trumpet could be fitted, with some modifications, into the gap under l/h part of the fairing next to the existing horn. The gap would need to be trimmed away somewhat to allow the Denali trumpet to fit in. By doing it this way the trumpet would be facing more or less forward and not having the sound stifled like some other locations. All this is in my head at the moment and haven't yet ventured to start stripping panels out to see if this will work. One day maybe. You could always do it first Tim and let us know you did it Rolling Eyes

Jeez, Den, thanks for your inspiring confidence. Crying or Very sad

Unfortunately, I have a Stebel so I'm faced with finding a location to mount this thing. One of the lnks Meldrew pointed out has the Stebel mounted in front of the Combination Meter assembly.

Now if only I had a Madstad windshield I could attach the horn/compressor unit facing forward on the experior of the thick metal lower windscreen mount plate along with a nice pair of Denali LED driving lamps.

I had a pair of Rivco air horns on my '93 Goldwing. Mounted them under the right saddlebag with the compressor in the bag. VERY LOUD! It took a second or so for the compressor to build up pressure so I could give a short toot on the horn button which would come from the OEM horn or hold the button for more than a second and the air horns would go off.
I should look into the cost of the electric horns Honda puts on the GL1800. Those electric horns were very loud, nearly as loud as my Rivcos.
I installed a pair of electric Fiamm horns (one high note, one low) on my GT. Sounds great and is pretty loud. At least it gets more attention than the meep meep OEM horn.

The Stebel Air Horn comes in Black or Chrome, so if you can't mount it where it can be hidden, then mount a chrome out in the open.
I have a black one mounted on my 650 Burgman, under the Front Panel, just to the right of the forks. There is just enough room for them to swing and miss the horn. I powered it by a separate switched fuse in an additional fuse box that I installed under the Front Panel.
