The link to my original 'how to install a stebel" at briman's site has changed.
The first post in this thread needs the link updated.

Here is the new link:

A member here ww4cash has has some starting issues with his bike.
He had to have it towed for repair, and turns out several wires got pulled from their harness under the tank from moving the tank to access the left neck cover.

I have always recommended people carefully remove the tank completly for mods/repairs (and have been guilty of being lazy and not doing it)...but if you choose to just slide the tank back, be *very* careful you don't pull the wires since you are not unplugging the harnesses.

I haven't seen anything mentioned about the small 90 degree fitting that looks like it slides up in the air intake. Is that necessary to install or is it just for a tube if you mount it in a confined area?

I heeded that and removed the tank carefully when I did my tail mods. Good advice

Stebel horn install complete.

I completed the install if my Stebel air horn today. Boy! what a blast. My wife was outside the garage when I tried it out and she screamed.

Thanks for the great directions.
