Update,, I finally managed to locate the horn, really hidden in the bowls of the bike, I took the horn off with a little effort , but managed to snap the bracket that attaches it to the radiator!!!! As the replacement horn ,A Denali soundbomb  is too large to take the place of the original it ain't a problem . :lala: My next dilemma was where to attach it , not easy as every place around the engine I could find, the crash bars were in the way, I've decided to place it behind the right side panael , where it fits really well, just need to tidy the wiring up then Play lol!!!!!!! :dl_hyperhysteria: PS its furking lowd  :thumb: pictures will follow :thumb:
