While I was doing my dual sport conversion I was wondering where to mount the horn. I walked to the left side of the bike and saw where I have removed the smog junk and bam a great place for a horn. Fit perfect and totally hidden. Sound is plenty loud.
On the handlebar switch it did not have a kill switch function so I use the turn signal switch to kill motor. In Texas we don't have to have turn signals.

I hear you just have to tell them it's street legal in Colorado and they give you a tag.

Almost that easy. Add the horn and a brake switch, then go get your tag! I feel bad for Californians and Floridians.

If the mounts give out it will just rub the frame.
The horn is sitting right behind the frame.

Nice switch. Does your hotstart lever clear it ok? I had to have a buddy make me a spacer for my '04. I still have several left. PM me if you want one.

BARELY LEGAL OFFROAD HORN KIT
Self Contained Battery Operated Unit
Handlebar Mounted Switch


I made this kit for myself last year and it worked really well. I'm curious to see if any of the members might be interested in purchasing this kit from me since the law keeps trying to make all horns on road legal bikes electric only. No more squeakers or air horns allowed (at least in NH, anyways!).

This kit will be safer simply because you can still keep both hands on the bars while riding and also have a loud enough horn that people can HEAR you. This is not stunningly loud, but far louder than most horns that we all "use" currently to make ourselves legal for turkey runs and road use to jump trailhead to trailhead.

I had tried the easy way of connecting the power source through the headlight wiring, but the fluctuation of power based on throttle position made the horn sound weak and always varied in its intensity.

Check out the clip I made for this kit here:

If anyone is interested in this kit, PM me and I will buy the parts, make them up and notify you when its ready. $29.95 plus shipping (which shouldn't be much).
