    Where to buy Stebel

    Since there is no way I'm going to be riding the VFR anytime soon, I'm still puttering away on it in the garage.

    Like practically every other bike I've had, I'm looking to put a Stebel air horn on it. Since it is all apart to get the ECU re-done, I may as well do it now.

    I ordered one last week from Stebel USA but lines got crossed (and I screwed up) so it is being returned when it eventually arrives.

    But for now, can anyone point me to a LMD shop or store that carries them? I'm looking for the Stebel brand; not the Wolo at Lordco or the cheap Canadian Tire one.

    Possibly 2ndGear Motorsports, as they are a Twisted Throttle dealer, who sell Stebel.

    Failing that, perhaps a Harley Dealer......more popular with that crowd.

    I assume you're specifically looking for the Stebel Nautilus Compact?

    Yep, the compact. I have to head over with the Mrs to Royal Park so I'll swing in there tomorrow.*

    Thanks! *

    LOL they aren't that big, about the size of 2 cans of pop. The only bike I've ever had trouble hiding them on was a second generation Tuono. You couldn't hide a pack of smokes on that thing.

    I'm a fan of a decent horn. The meeper that is on the VFR is pretty pathetic. That guy starting to creep out of a side street? They stop pretty quick when it sounds like a truck is bearing down. Same for the muppet texting on their phone and drifting into your lane. Slowing them down gives me a fraction more time to get clear of them.

    BOOM! Done and done. 2nd Gear Motorsports had one on the shelf. *Decent price as well. They also had a pre-made wiring harness. I've always made my own before, but for $37 it was an easy decision to make.*

    Installed *and wired in only 2 hours.

    Thanks Chia!*

    I bought the one that has the compressor and horn split, so 2 separate pop cans. I've bought the one piece horn before and split them myself in order to get them to fit. However if you aren't inclined to be aggressive enough (aka being a dickhead) to use one and don't want it in the first place, why bother.

    But if you buy one it bears repeating, buy the wiring harness ....... it made the the process plug 'n play on the electrical side.*

    How did your project go?

    I bought this Stebel Nautilus air horn 10 years ago that took over 6 hours to install in my Honda F4i. It was because there was only one space that it would fit into that was difficult to get to. And after the motorcycle was reassembled and I left the shop, it worked for about 5 minutes...

    I had a dead horn stuck inside of my motorcycle for a while until I discovered that it melted and then had to get it removed. The original horn is back in there again.

    I suggest the Stebel Nautilus Mini. Still mighty loud, but no reservoir, so much less bulk to fit away...
