    Well I have had my new horn on for 1 month now (no smutty remarks please). I managed to fit it in the same place as the original but bolted directly to the mount. All you can see is the tips of the trumpets. Apart from tidying up the wiring and remounting the relay to a more sheltered position...

    Just got one of these to replace the manky one in my Dakar, it comes with a foam insert to use with standard fuelling. Anyone here using a K+N? If so did you use the insert or leave it out? I'll put it in unless i hear good things to the contrary, Thanks, Nick :)

    Well I have fitted the horn and it sits on the bracket that housed the old horn. The trumpets just peek out from under the fairing just below the headlight. Now the wiring. Advice please. I plan to take the power from the battery to one of the original horn cables, take the second to the relay...

    I have finally fitted (though not wired in yet ) my air horn. I took off the thin steel plate that the old horn was mounted on (1 bolt) and then the bracket that the strip was mounted to (2 bolts). The horn body has a built in mount that allows you to mount the horn on two different planes.I...

    Just checked the air filter on my ST. All very clean and with the foam slightly tacky and in good condition. But then it struck me ( it probably is a daft question this) where does the air come from to pass through the filter? it appears to be in a sealed box. Would someone enlighten me?

    If i fit a K&N air filter to a twin spark Dakar, can i run it without the foam insert without retuning? If not, is there much point in fitting one?
  17. F650 Single Discussion
    Do any of you guys know of a foam filter that is available for an 04 GS ( and an X Challenge come to that ) I've been looking online and the only filters I can find are K&N :-(

    I have been monitoring my performance recently and in particular my air filter. Here are some interesting facts. 1. A dirty air filter reduces my mpg by around 10-15% (from 60mpg to 52mpg) 2. The paper filter was only good for about 1,500 miles. At this point, I found the performance a bit...

    After owning my ST for a couple of years now, I went to the petrol station the other day to inflate my tyres for the first time (first time at a petrol station that is). Is it just me or is the typical pump connection you get at a petrol station impossible to get onto the valve on the rear wheel...
