Bottom of horn is flush with bottom of front cowling. Took some time but I think I got it right! Fan bypass is for the rad. BUT now ya gots me thinking... Will work on adding a fan system for oil cooler! THANKS MAN!?? Your location for your horn looks very neat. Any concern re restricting airflow over the cooler behind it especially after installing your custom rad cover? I'm assuming your fan switch is only for the lower main water rad not the oil rad behind your horn.
Liking your DIY mirror extenders too. I went one step further and in addition to my extenders added aspherical mirror glass (the type where the tips give a wider angle of view to help reduce/ eliminate blind spots).

Found them on eBay specifically for our birds.
Ignore the fact I've added heating elements and turn signals.
Oh! That's going to look GOOD! I like how you changed all lighted symbols!!! Neat! AND just gave me an idea! Would love to see finished product!Have a look at my dash project. The mini gear changer, replacement digital clock/ watch and TPMS may be of interest.

The pic is my current design mock up (Photoshop) showing full illumination. In reality most extra lights/ switches will be dark when not in use (so looking more "stock").
The clock is built (arduino project) and the mini gear display ready. Cruise control and voltmeter yet to be tackled.
All other parts are bought and awaiting installation.
Oh! SWEET! I want one! LOL! BUT did suzie make it only for their carbed bikes? Did they also make it without choke lever?
Lens are clear with switch back LED's. LEDs are round. U can see them in the pics. Quite happy with set up... For now! May change at a later date.
Thanks mate! MMMmmmm.... No I have not. BUT quite happy with wing rack! Solid stable. Givi set as you mentioned are for the big long trips!Big fan of your undertail/ brakelight/ Corbin Beetle mod.
Fyi I found the Givi monorail perfect for mounting them with a Givi top box (sufficient clearance for the Bag lids to clear the top box, even my whopping E52) View attachment 118661
I too have spare Givi panniers for bigger loads. I've not needed to swap over yet so don't know how slick or not it'll be.
I'd love to swap barrels out of the Corbins to Givi ones to be "monokey". Not googled for parts yet. Tried it yourself?
I've only been up to 160mph solo (and two up) with Beetles in place. Solid as a rock (inc with large top box - Givi Maxia E52 - in place). Beetle bags are extremely well designed aerodynamically.Not sure... How bird will react with solo rider with Beetle bags catching wind? high speed wobble? Anyone?
Thanks mate. The blind spot reduction is definitely worth it. In their un-mod'd state they're just stick-ons. With the heating elements and turn indicators (neither of which I'm yet convinced are worth the extra work) the mounting will need careful adjustments. One of my other mad projects is to try to make the wing mirrors fold electronically (I filter a lot even with the beetles on).WOW! REALLY nice touch! saw this one B4! So it was you! VERY NICE!…
I got all the dash lights (standard and customised) plus waterproof switches from "FILN Official Store" on AliExpress. At £1.20-2.50 each they were way more economical than any Western supplier plus they were brilliant with one-off custom requests at no extra charge. The only thing they've struggled with is my request for bi- or tri- coloured leds in waterproof switches.Oh! That's going to look GOOD! I like how you changed all lighted symbols!!! Neat! AND just gave me an idea! Would love to see finished product!
Finding the choke lever version was the hard task! Soz… from your dash I thought you were a carb BB like me not an EFI.Oh! SWEET! I want one! LOL! BUT did suzie make it only for their carbed bikes? Did they also make it without choke lever?
For way less money, buy used Suzuki switchgear off ebay, off of a bandit 1250, this is the same as mallows pic. I did it a couple of years ago. Note: not plug and play, honda multi pin plug must be spliced onto Suzuki loom.
Thanks Fizzy! Yeah... saw some new going for $155 US. Will definitely get one! Not crazy about having to spice but alas! That's what I gots to do! AND Thanks to you, I found one on ebay for $40 bucks Canadian!! Thank you again Fizzy!For way less money, buy used Suzuki switchgear off ebay, off of a bandit 1250, this is the same as mallows pic.
