     I was inspired by your brake cover, so I had a go at making my own the J is a bit off center but this was my second attempt.

Very nice, I should charge license fees or stop publishing drawings.  :138:
But great that it worked. But why J ???

By the way, I still have two covers to sell. Super carnival price  :168: 15 euros each.
A straight line is only the shortest connection between two curves ...

   J is for John, if I have some spare time I will do one with an X
Thanks,

Sounds good  :152: I'm curious - do you need an approval in German for this mod? Here in Spain it's a pain to obtain an approval for almost everything  :138:

Regards,

Timur

Hello Timur,
The Fiamm horns have an Italian E3 approval and are therefore also approved in Germany.
Since Spain also belongs to the EU, the E3 number should also apply there.

Thanks Michael! Unfortunately here we need to obtain an approval even for TUV, CE, etc. certified components. Bureacracy  :157:

Brief interim report:
installed the double horn today, the thing is hell :087: and brings at least 10PS more thrust at the push of a button.  :005:

After I decided to exchange the Japanese "mip mip" horn for an Italian orchestra, the right place had to be found. That was not so easy, since the two horns are bigger than the original horn. They should also be protected from strong splash water.

I then found two places under the front side panel that are ideal for assembly. The supplied mounting plates can be used for this. On the right side, the assembly works without further adjustment to the standard bracket of a connector.



On the left side I used the standard mounting of a component for the assembly. Here, however, the bracket must be bent a little further in order to have enough space behind the panel.





To securely attach the relay, I drilled a 4mm hole in the throttle cable bracket and cut an M5 thread. In this way, the relay can be securely attached with the plug and wiring harness.



After dismounting the serial horn, the old cable must still be laid up and connected to the relay.



Usually the two horns have to be connected in parallel with each other, at least the plus line. The relay supplied has 2 connections (87) for controlling the horns. This simplifies the connection. I then connected the ground wire of the two horns to the threaded screw.



First of all, I connected permanent plus directly to the battery via a fuse. If I connect additional consumers, I will install a fuse distributor.



The cladding fits over the horns without change, these are almost invisible and protected from water.
The most difficult part of the assembly was to find the right place for the individual components and the wiring harness. Now that this has been cleared, retrofitting should no longer be a problem.

In any case, the renovation was worth it, a difference in sound like day and night.
