Relocated SC1000 Horn/s

I have read a number of threads about people removing the horns from the front forks and relocating them elsewhere and as I dont perticularly like the plastic/cluttered look of the horns, I decided to do the same.
The following is my version of the move for any who are interested.
Using the most hi-tech and readily available testing equipment at my disposal (not one but two ears), I tested the output of two horns compaired to one horn and found them to be very similar.
I removed both horns and mounting plates from the bottom tripple clamp and bent one plate to enable bolting under the bottom tank mount, between the front throttle body and the oil cooler.
My brother also has a SC1000 (albeit yellow, which proves some people have a distorted view on perfection than Black SC1000 owners) and there seems to be no discernable difference in volume.

The daylight pic was prior to doing the front LED indicator install.
An easy - no cost mod.

Remember, as long as you cite your sources it's not plagiarism - it's referencing. I plan to reference this idea in the very near future.

Brilliant! I just did it. I will probably replace the horn with a louder one later.
