There is a risk with the Magnum horn. The first time I used them, 2 SUV's fell over on their sides, a lady's dress was blown up about her ears, one man suffered a heart attack and another was blown through a plate glass window.
I wound up installing both the Stebel Magnums and the compact version of the Stebel Nautilus. My bike now sounds like an Amtrak train's horn.
Finding a suitable location for the Nautilus is the problem.
I have the Wilbers shock control located there or I would use the cavity located next to the rider's right ankle. I had to locate my air horn under the fairing off an engine mounting tab. Make sure it's far enough from the #4 exhaust pipe to avoid damage to the horn's diaphragm (don't ask).
Another potentail location would be on top of the rear fork pivot in front of the mud flap. That would require removing the rear wheel for installation.
Damn! I hate it when I have to admit I screwed up.
DO NOT locate the Nautilus under the fairing. Even though I spaced it away from the exhaust pipes and mounted a heat deflector between it and the pipes, I still wound up heat damaging one of the diapragms (probably from ambient heat buildup after parking the bike).
I'm determined to have a Nautilus along with the Magnums.
The next one will be mounted at the rear side of the Givi luggage rack.
