Mounting twin horns

I am looking for assistance with the mounting of the twin Fiamm horns that I wired in last night..there is a small diameter tube that runs inside the front of the fairing that might work..I wish I could find a small neoprene lined clamp with a bracket onto which I could attach the horns..all I could find are gear clamps that always look slightly agricultural...any sources/suggestions?

Any hardware store or the big box stores should have something. I think they are cable straps. There are lots of other threads on this too, just search Fiamm. I had dual Fiamms mounted the same way on my '02.

Here's one other thread

I found them at my local ace. They may also be known as 'P' clamps.

Here's how I did mine.



Those are conduit ground clamps, with an additional custom bracket (bent metal ) on which to hang the horns.

I mounted mine off the front turn signal bolts. Nice and tidy, no extra fasteners needed. They tuck up nicely under the fairing plastics. Yes, I would have to remove the horns to remove the turn signals, but no biggy. I think all I had to do was drill out the hole in the included bracket a bit bigger to allow the signal bolt to pass through.

No photos, unfortunately.
