PWD Stebel Horn Mounting Kit DL650

Gary Has made mounting a Stebel Horn extremely easy !!!!!!!!!!
I never did like the horn under the front Fairing, I always thought it would echo out to me instead of the obsticle that is trying to run me off the road.

I Have the Stebel horn from Gary since last year. In my infinate wisdom I mounted the horn under my seat, a DL650 without ABS has room.
Told Gary I needed to move my horn to a better location, he said a new Mounting kit is what I need.
No remaval of the front covers / fairing. That would have been hard with the GIVI Bars. Today I mounted the horn on the left side, first I had to remove the horn, removal was 10 minutes, then running the wires in a new way, 10 more minutes, Mounting the horn was probably 5 minutes, but 10 with pictures.

Naked bike no Horn yet

PWD instructions are in color, I already had the Relay Harness


The instruction said to mount the bracket a certain way, just look at the picture and place the unit on a flat surface. The Arm will be in the correct angle. The nut has a plastic tightening washer, so no messy Lock-nut stuff


Heres the threaded hole that is hiding behind the rubber plug.


Here you can see where the slightly crescent arm will rest once the bolt has been tightened. I used a light lock tight on the bolt, the weight of the horn will keep everything else in place.


Wires and air hose all fit very nice and are easily hidden by the side panel. The hose is brought up and stuffed under the Tank, hose is inportant to help keep dirt and water out of the motor. My picture is crappy looking, but maybe you can tell anyway




I really recommend this mount, and I sure hope Gary keeps up the good work.

I am so happy now. Have a new Stebel in the mail as I write. Better location than my first one which met a horrible death.

For anyone interested in making their own bracket. You will need a 10mmX1.25 pitch bolt in fine thread. Pick your length according to your needs. Found one at an auto/industrial supply. Any piece of flat iron will work for the bracket.

Got the kit today and install was easy and very tidy. Just left my old horn where it was. I am taking my Stebel with me if i ever sell the bike. Horn is loud for those crazy cagers out there and for telling the wife to hurry up. PWD....good place to do business.

I made the mounting bar from 1" x 1/8" aluminum. The 10mm-1.25 bolt was a bit hard to find. It seems that there are three thread pitches available in 10mm. If the bolt doesn't easily screw into the hole in the engine, it is the wrong bolt.

Just finished my home-made mount today. Got an L bracket and sawed the thing in two. Hogged out the holes to fit and I was in business. Good to be loud again.

The photo links are broken. I follow some of what is described, but am still a bit lost.

My city recently installed a couple of roundabouts, and with the Stebel horn on the left, I wanted another horn on the right for the folks entering the roundabout when I'm circling. I put a Freeway Blaster low-tone on the right wired from the same relay powering the Stebel. Sounds good!

Yeah, what is it about PhotoBucket photos that makes them go away, and is there a way to keep them around?
