Default My version of SeifertR's front horn relocate...

I really liked this horn relocate mod, & I thought I'd contribute with a step by step of how I did it...


Step #1, unplug the front horn & remove the two 8mm head retaining bolts.








Step #2, locate the two 5mm allen head bolts at the back of the starter bracket, & remove them.








The hardware I used, was bought at my local Ace Hardware & was roughly $10.


2 - 6mm x 1.0 chrome allen bolts approximately 2" long.


2 - 1/4" ID x 3/4" long chrome spacers


2 - 1/4" chrome flat washers (omit the 6mm flat washers, they were too small to use)





Step #3, I reindexed the horn's mounting bracket so the horn would point down when installed...I removed one of the horn's assembly screws & moved the bracket one space back - counterclockwise...Reinstall the assembly screw ahead of the bracket...





...like so.








Step #4, install the bolts, washers & spacers through the mounting holes of the horn bracket.





Step #5, install horn assembly into starter bracket bolt holes. Tighten to spec, & reroute the horn harness over to the left side of the engine. I simply ran it under the voltage regulator, securing it into the one ratcheting clamp directly below it. I then secured any loose harnesses with zip ties.











The end result is very clean & looks as if it belongs that way...Thank-you SeifertR for a great mod!!!

You may want to contact Chuck Brazeau (aka BrazeauRacing). He did a nice relocation of the brake switch and the horn.

Nice...


Remember, if you take the horn apart you can swing the connectors towards the bottom if it would look any beter...


All you have to do is remove the outside cirlce of bolts and spin the base to desired direction and put bolts back on again.

I think there was a recent post about using hydraulic switch to replace the OEM one. I think that's the route I'm going to go along with doing the horn as it was done here. Nice write-up.

Great job looks neat and like it should be there. I wish the ACE near me had chrome hardware they are very limited in choice.
