Good info there Cug. I like the bottom one there, only with narrower cases. Problem is I can't understand a word they're sayin'!

Something the same or less width than the bars would be ideal in my mind. And strong enough to survive a tip over.

It's a Zard Penta exhaust and the rack is a home-optimized rack system.

I can translate if you want to know anything in particular.

My system (the Jesse setup seen above) is one inch wider than the handguards at the widest point if I recall correctly. I think my Roadie is ~36" at the handguards and the Jesse luggage is 37". Might be half an inch off or so.

Oxford Heated Grips

So I finally got round to fitting my Oxford heated grips and I'm trying to find some inspiration on where to fit the controller. The little bracket that comes with the grips is not doing it for me. Anybody fitted these grips and if so, where did you fit the controller - pics would be great.

Cheers

That's a nice looking exhaust. Isn't 500 euro about $750 USD???

$643 right now, and German pricing always includes 19% sales tax. Nevertheless, price was one of the reasons I wasn't interested in the Zard. I also found it ugly.

I paid $260 for the Fuel exhaust, including shipping from England.

Did anybody replace that flimsy OEM horn with something more attention grabbing?

Somehow I feel embarrassed when I use the OEM horn and hear my wife over the intercom just say "meow meow - little baby tiger wants to get your attention, please look down and don't step on me" ...

Sterbel Nautilus. Mine's mounted split from the compressor. Sounder lives in the tail next to the indicator relay and the compressor lives forward of the cross spar in the pillion underseat storage.

On my Scram, I straightened out the bracket and mounted it on the mirror clamp.


Now, on the 800, I've put it on the end of the Renthal cross brace.

Wow. Both seem like total overkill to me but they'll certainly get attention ...

I was more looking for a simple replacement of the OEM horn. Just a drop in thing.

Check out the Wolo line. They are available on the shelf at many auto parts stores. Quite a variety of sizes, shapes and tones to choose from.

I've read the same, but I can't find them anywhere. Even the UK shops don't seem to have it anymore. Bummer.

They have a packet of two for the RT as the only one remaining. Add to that shipping to the US and becomes a bit over the head for getting a louder horn.

I'll see what I can find here locally. Maybe I can even find something in one of the Auto part stores.
