Stuck Brake Pad Pin

OK - so the torx fitting slipped on my front brake pad pin - have soaked it with penetrating oil - bought a "back out" tool - and that then snapped off.

Any ideas? Am I a clutz or what?

Stebel install on 04 1150gs

Has anybody ever just mounted this horn directly to the screw holding the bracket for the OEM horn? Would have to drill out the bracket on the horn to make it fit.......

Odyssey install fun

Have a 2004 GS - got the "L" brackets for the Odyssey - but they stick up so far they almost short out on the bottom of the gas tank!

How did you with 1150's work it to hook it up?:ear
