Depends who you ask. Here's a thread on where I have installed mine: Stebel Nautilus Air Horn Install Guide for XR/XC. It's been blasting hapilly for me, for almost two years.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I separated my Stebel horn from the compressor. My compressor is mounted next to the battery and a small piece of tubing is run up to the horn which is mounted in the stock location. I had to do some grinding to the horn and front valance but it was done EASILY with a dremel .. let me see if I can find some pics ..

EDIT: PICS!!

Ready to install:


Compressor mounted next to battery:


Horn mounted stock location:


Valance back in place:


Hope this helps! Any information you need let me know!!

Mine is in the same location as Crossroads', but mounted differently. Worked fine the last two years.

Mine is mounted inside the fairing, I like how the one poster used the stock mounting place.

On the 2012 XR the ABS components take up the space that Crossroads used to mount his Stebel. I fashioned a mudflap for protection and used one of the mudflap mounting bolts to mount mine. It sits lower, but the mudflap keeps water and debris out. Most of the sound goes down and to the rear, so I kept the original horn connected in parallel with the WOLO (Stebel)
