I suppose this video is no problem in America when Spanish language is replacing American English as the national language.

haha thank you!

I don't really honk many times, but now I've been wanting to, its impressive the difference this new horn makes.

motoGP is coming! last Saturday I did the 7500 miles maintenance and the new horn was the add-on for the trip. prepping all the logistics, taking off in two weeks from now.

I actually have two of those horns in my shed, one I was going to put on my previous scoot but could not find room for it so I now have the motivation to put it on my new to me 400. Thanks Fernando!!

I want to be sure I have this correct. The negative on the horn is going to the ground/mounting bolt of the relay. The positive on the horn is going directly to the battery with a inline 10 amp fuse and then you are plugging the original two horn wires into the relay. My question is that the relay has four connections, which two am I using? Or is it that I have this all wrong.........? I also cant seem to find a relay connecting block but that is really not so important but I would like to know where to get one.
Thanks
Neal

they relay have 4 pins:

- the 2 parallel pins are numbered one 85 and the other 86, it doesn't matter which way you connect them, you can go positive or negative on either way.

-the other pin is numbered 30 its the positive and is where you connect the wire that comes from the battery with the inline fuse.

-Finally the last one its ID as 87 goes straight from the relay to the horn's positive.

-The horn's ground(-) goes in the same bolt where the horn goes mounted.

Hey Fernando (and all others!) just an update on the horn install. I got it done and am real happy to have the loud horn. I did however make a couple of changes in the install. First I put the relay up with the battery. I found that there was more than enough room for it within the battery compartment behind the removable divider that hides the battery. This way the relay and its connections are out of the weather. Also, I had a hard time fitting the horn behind the plastic so I removed the headlight assembly and then the plastic piece that would hide the horn and then mounted the horn and reinstalled all the plastics, made more work and took more time but was happy with the overall install. Thanks again for the help Fernando, you made it easy!
