    I mostly installed the air horn. Have it and the relay mounted but haven't got all the wiring done yet. Need to find the fuse for my GPS tracker so I know where it goes if it gets stolen but last time i left it on, it killed the battery, though it shouldn't have. I recently found out that this one runs on 2G/3G for sending gps data to the server and the mfgr said they'd send me a new one for free since 3G is nearly done for, costs me 10/mo but I figure why not? A little extra insurance, if you will.

    @icemann after looking at your setup for the air horn, I decided to place mine in the same location. It's a different model slightly and the bell points down and to the left. I accidentally grabbed a zener diode to solder to the relay, this resulted in a blown horn/signal fuse when I was checking the operation. Anyway it's mounted and I probably should NOT have tested it in the garage, holy hell!

    Still waiting on my bearings from WD. I was a little annoyed that they waited a week to ship the parts I ordered, something about backorder on a part. Monday I contacted them to ask if the parts would be here by the weekend and asked to go ahead and send what they had. Figured they'd ship on Tuesday but nope, tracking says the label was printed Thursday, should be here Monday. There goes my weekend.

    Tomorrow shopping for new speakers and cleaning up the wiring in the fairing then I'll swap out my seat and continue to wait for the bearings.

    @PDXLaserGazer Dont you have an Napa close? They can cross reference size, probably 50 things it’ll interchange with

    Uh, not sure if there's a Napa close. I think there's a car quest and I already checked O'Reilly's plus I like to support our vendors. Just minor annoyances. And it started getting windy and rainy anyway.

    Isn’t there a relay available that already has the diode in place?

    Yes, there are a few brands that make them.
    Many automotive relays already have it if they not a cheapo version. Look at the diagram usually on top the relay.

    Yes I was using the relay that came with it. I have tons of electronic components lying around so I can modify just about anything or build just about anything, just grabbed the wrong one. Speaking of building stuff, I'm in final design stage of forward run/turn module for the x bikes. I know there are some out there already but I want a true plug and play that actually works without any modifications by the end-user.

    Grabbed a Grasshopper backrest off a dude on Facebook. $50 was worth the shot. It's not the best but it'll help on long rides.
