To answer your question, the problem is not exclusively BMW models, nor does it encompass all BMW models. Actually, it appears to be a few different makes and models but in total out of 700, about 7% have needed the relay for their Banshee Horn to function properly. This is due to the fact that some bikes are manufactured in a way that the horn utilizes a different type of signal than what the Screaming Banshee Control Unit requires. Most horns have a positive signal when activated. Some bikes are the exact opposite, which explains why the Banshee will sound as soon as the ignition is turned on. If you flip the signal (turn the negative pulse into a positive) than it solves the problem, which is exactly what the relay we provide for free, does for you. Problem solved.
We don't know every single model that requires the relay; however we are compiling a database based on people’s requests for the relay. If you think you need a relay, call or email us and we will ship it out same day at no cost.
Note: Our new models will no longer have this issue and will detect which type of signal to use and deliver accordingly.
