Bad Boy Air Horn Mounted on XCountry


I mounted a Wolo Bad Boy horn on my XC and would like to share it with you all. 


 


I took a 1/4" X 4 1/2" X 5 1/2" aluminum plate and made it my mounting bracket as you can see in the picture




I fastened the relay switch to the backside of the plate to help hide the wiring. Next is to remove the side panel which you will find 2 threaded holes to mount the plate.



With the plate predrilled i can now fasten it to the bike with 2 metric 8mm X 15mm allen screw which I had. The next picture will show the unit mounted in place.



All conection that I had done I also used a dielectric grease to allow good connections while riding through different weather systems and climates. This is something I do with all electrical connections.Now the final picture with the side panel back on. I also plane to paint the mounting bracket black so it blends into that space a little bit more. 



If you have any questions let me know.


Stay Safe

It's not the destination, it's not the journey. It's the experiences we learn along the way. That's how I look at a ride.

Good stuff...Nice Job!!!

Look in the mirror, laugh at yourself..it's healthy!

I like it! Thanks for posting. I think I may do the same thing. I didn't want to tear into the fairing to mount it. This gives a nice alternative.

Thanks again. 

If you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Hi Bob, I also put my inline fuse in behind the other side panel where you would find the other fuses. With the Wolo they show a inline fuse from the battery to the unit. This way if for any reason you blow a fuse it is easy to access.

I'd supply the magic serum. But it's a loooooooong way to go for a drink!

I have a badboy horn that I installed on the ignition bracket, Made a simple bracket,        then drilled a 5/16 hole on the left side of the ignition bracket, ran the wires under the gas tank & blam-o looks like it was made that way.having it on the side of the front cylinder means it stays cool an out of the way .
