Craig.. what an awesome offer.. youre ALWAYS welcome KLR brother.. but I have pictures under control thanks
ok Stebel Thread continues
Work with me guys.. I was born long before computers.. I figured out an image host.. lets see if I can get this to work
Stebel Horn Fairing Mount Install "HOW-TO"
1) Removed fairing, remove light plug/turn signal plugs/ mark and get out of the way
2) Place Stebel on fairing bracket (drivers side) for fitup.. note that a new bracket, (3/8" x 1" w x 2" long), 3/8 is necessary for strength as the stubel is heavy but also for "spacing" the horn away from the fairing bracket for clearance) ,will need to be welded to the fairing headlight mount. This requires some trial and fitup. Make sure you have clearance, minimum 1/16" from alll contact points
3) After getting the right location and drilling a hole (5/16") through your new mount (in my case I had to clearance the existing factory center brace so I could get a socket on the stebel nut) Bolt on the stubel for trial fit.
In my case the cast body of the stubel just touched the fork tube when I tightened everything up.. not good.. so I ground off some of the excess cast housing. Bulders note... IT IS VERY IMPORTANT not to have any part of the horn touch the fork tube (or anything for that matter).. the vibration would wear the tube and while the casting of the horn is softer there is no way you would want it abraiding any part on the bike
4) After some more fitup I tried the fairing plastic.. it hit enough to be an issue ..hitting on the front trumpet of the stubel... so out came the cutoff saw.. several fitups and cuts had the horn fitting perfectly.. with clearance all the way around. The excess trumpet cut off wont affect any sound. The horn points at the mesh in the front fairing.
5) I took a picture after I bolted the fairing on.. there is about 1/2" clearance between the compressor and the fender... so electrical wiring lugs need to be bent at a 90 degree angle.. then waterproofed. Build note: The headlight fairing bracket bolts onto the KLR neck with two bolts.. they are a sloppy fit and you can make the headliight go up or down depending on where you elect to have the bracket during tightening phase... MAKE SURE you locate it in the upward most position.. i.e. pull up on it while tightening it.. This gives you an extra 1/8-3/16" to play with for the install.. you'll need it
Your light harness now has to go over the top of the bracket and needs wire ties, as the stock wire holder will no longer be used.
Im happy with the way it fits... its concealed..looks factory stock... puts the sound where it needs to be,, off the ground /projected forward
Hopefully someone can lead me about posting pictures and I can get them here directly next time
Next Ill post up how-to wire this and put a new fuseblock in.. that makes it all go together...
