Beep Beep No More

I realized from day 1 that the stock KLR horn was next to useless, especially at freeway speeds. Today I solved that by installing a Stebel Nautilis horn. Leapin lizards is that thing loud! Guaranteed to make an inattentive driver crap their pants. I ordered it from Twisted Throttle along with their 08+ KLR mounting bracket. Due to the position of the HT crash bar brace, their bracket wasn't going to work. I fabbed up a simple bracket out of some aluminum that was laying around and used existing holes. Had to use some longer bolts for mounting to the overflow bottle mounts and a couple nuts to space things out for clearance. I removed the stock horn and bracket and used one of its mounting holes to attach the relay. Wired up the relay and was done in no time.

OK, why do the photos that I've rotated to proper position get rotated back to the wrong position when I post it?

Nice, sardog1.

Nice work and, in my opinion, a very worthy addition. May do the same one of these days.
