    I have a Stebel Compact Nautilus horn which I want/need to mount on my F800GS. I know a couple of y'all have installed them on your bikes but couldn't find any info or pictures showing where you put the horn.

    Anyone able to hook a brutha up?? :ear

    I'll have a look when I pull the bike apart this weekend and see what I come up with.

    I'm not sure how I missed that thread since I did a search, but it didn't come up. Short version, he separated the horn from the compressor, mounted the compressor above the radiator and the horn below.

    I'm going to try this weekend to find a place where I can keep them together. We'll see.

    I mounted mine where the stock horn was mounted. I removed the plastic guard under the triple-clamp and carved out the bottom so the horn would fit without moving. I placed the round black cover in the large hole where the stock horn was mounted. I secured the Nautilus horn with some very long cable ties. The horn mouth is facing back and down so road crap won't get in it. I could post pictures too if I can figure out how to do it.

    The installation is very clean and up and out of the way and can't be seen unsless you stick your head under the fender. I ride in a lot of dirt and was concerned that the bouncing and jarring would cause the weight of the horn to fatigue the plastic guard that it's monted to to crack or break off because the plastic piece is not rigid and I have had no problem with it, so far.
