    You must have a GT. I don't have my bike here to look at, but I'd venture to think this unit should fit on the stock mount on a Sport. Considering I don't have the same headlight arrangement or the mechanisms for the electric screen our space may vary. As soon as I get my bike back from BMW, I'll sort it out and report back.

    Yes indeed, need to change the horn on the scooter. You'd think when BMW could put a horn on my '94 K1100LT that cracks windows a block away they could have done better on the scooter.

    Budget cutting. My K1200LT sounds like a 60's era Buick when I hit the horn. My scooter sounds like... well... a scooter.

    I have the same airborne but I yet to find a place to install it on my GT! And I have done lots of mods. I am actually planning to find a air horn that has separate complements so I can possibly install the air pump in a separate location (ie back of the bike) and route the air hose to the front horns that I am among to install right under the auxiliary PIAA lights.

    One of the downsides to mounting the components separately is the delay that can be induced. The compressor now has to build pressure in the (much longer) hose before the air horn is activated. Add to that the normal delay that the compressor takes to 'spin up' and you may see a unwanted delay.

    I'm not denigrating your idea - separate components are definitely much easier to mount - but you may create a longer delay between pressing the horn button and the horn actually sounding.

    Would a fork clamp offer a solution to the space issue on the gt? Something like this could easily handle a unit like the Nautilus.

    Just have to make sure whatever you mount there doesn't slam into the bodywork at full lock left or right...

    I can't imagine installing the Nautilus somewhere visible like on the forks. It is very ugly! :-)
    I think I will try to install the one with individual components. I think I can install the pump pretty close to to horns. Somewhere in the upper fork cavity. I can probably install the pump under the steering bar cover but that maybe too far. I
    have to check.
