One additional recommendation is to stop by Radio Shack or equal and get what is called "flag terminals' for the horn side of the wiring. These are 90 degree terminals that eliminate the stress, and the loop of wire, on the wiring that comes from the relay to the horn. It also cleans up the look as the wires are tucked up close to the horn.
Thanks and I'll have to try those terminals. Sounds like a great idea!

Re: Stebel Horn Install Tips and Best Practices

FYI... What year is your bike? One pick you showed looked alot like the ign switch wiring was routed behind your clutch cable. Suzuki did a recall to fix that before cable wore through wires.

Actually, Dentman, the shorter the better. It gets you closer to your work.

I haven't checked in here for a long time until the other night. Hope you're doing well.

Who is this comment directed to? I reviewed my posted pictures and I don't believe I have any shots showing the ignition wiring. Was it someone else's posted pictures?

Mine, by the way, is an '03.

I'm doing just fine Fred, I hope you are as well. My youngest boy started dirt riding this sping so I'm going to pick up one to join him. I don't know if 51 is too old to get back into offroad riding but I am going to give it a try anyway. Wish me luck.

IMO, 51 is not too old to ride offroad. At 51, it just takes longer for the broken bones to heal So one just has to be more carefull
