    I really like the gloss black around the Honda logo. Not sue what Mr H was thinking when they made them.

    Alpina wheels are on my lottery win wish list.

    Did the Stebel horn bolt right on? Any special hardware or brackets? They are killer loud. I'd like to put one on my bike.

    Bolted straight on....I think all that needed a tweek was the two tabs for the connections needed to be bent to a different angle. Such a difference compared to the pathetic oe horn.

    Hi Dany, really nice mods... I Just got a red dct AT and will be looking to mod it too. Just out of interest, I am thinking to go down the route of installing a steel rack instead of the givi adaptor for my Maxia 4. What's your thoughts on the sw-motech racks? Stable? secure?

    Is this the one piece or 2 piece "split" Stebel model, I can't see the "canister" part of the horn in the pic so wondered if it is mounted elsewhere? Had one on my KLR, and definitively needed on the AT
    PS: GREAT mods and and pics of them, thanks for posting this I've not yet begun. Is that the Honda centerstand, o or aftermarket model.

    I've used the SW-Motech racks on this and my KTM 1190 Adv. Ultimately, they bolt on to what the manufacturer gives you, but I've had no problems with stability and the topbox is rock solid when in place.

    The horn isn't the canister type, what is shown is what it is. It's so much better than oe and virtually a straight fit replacement.

    got the same shortie levers from flea bay..I think $25 delivered. Amazing quality for the money.
    Oem clutch lever is under the seat just in case.

    Reg the stiebel, the compressor stiebel is a trumpet attached to a air compressor. Stupid loud, but bulky, and hard to fit, without looking like a total afterthought.

Terrible job, took hours but having now ridden the bike, I can feel a nice improvement and the spongy feel is now eliminated.

    Thank you. :)

    The Alpinas are fantastic in both looks, quality and air tightness. :D

    Ohhh, I just remembered that I bought a (medium) Touratech tinted screen near the end of last year. :confused:

    It’s very nice quality, much thicker than any other screen I’ve had and terribly expensive. It’s shape has been described by someone as ‘Rallye style’ with the top upright lip on it. However, TT claim aero dynamic/wind tunnel development in the design and for me, it wasn’t as good as I was hoping. I’ve found short screens to work best with my Arai TourX and this screen was fine up to around 60mph. Over that and the dreaded peak vibration kicked in. I tried to sell the screen to no avail, so decided to take my Dremel to that top piece and cut it off. :eek:

    All I can say now is that I made a good job of altering it, but haven’t tried it out so far. That’ll happen come April with hopefully a nice bit of Spring weather.

    After and before pics.
