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.

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)

Looking to install a horn and came across this post. How did you mount the compressor and horn, and what did you use?

Old news is quite often helpful.
I'm looking at upgrading the horn on my XC to the Stebel Air Horn.
Thanks for digging this up!

I mounted mine under the back of the rear fender similar to CrossRoads. I had not seen his writeup before but there are not many other places on a Cross-bike with enough space that are not obviously visible or that don't require cutting.

But it took me a little to get used to hearing the horn sound coming from behind me. First few times I thought there was a car right on my tail o_O

On my CCT i installed it left side behind the rear jug, next to the exhaust,

I stopped using STEBEL compressor horns,

i use electric horns now, same loud and no compressor, so less bulky, and less to beak down, you even have 2 tone sounds for small boats, i think I installed 2 piece on my Jack-hammer

sample picture attached

So is this an upgraded coil in the original horn body? Or is this a completely new unit?
Can you please share the brand or company name.

It's just Aliexpress boat horn, so it can withstand water and salt water, i did a lot of reading and figured WoLo is just break-down sensitive compared to this electronic horn, also 129 decibel ...

If you buy stuff like this then read the 1 Star first, then 2 Star, and so on, no use of reading the 5 star

I do not know the brand or type, it was just one of a thousand but had great reviews
