Yes, it's rough...It's a handmade prototype, just to see if it would work. I had some old sheet metal in the garage... I'm pretty sure it could be stamped out with a die cutter for a few cents... sand blasted and coated without any big effort. The only place I could find to attach it is on the clutch lever block... the adjustment would be a big issue. If I like it after using it for a while, it might make it to the next stage? Probably not. Right now, it makes the turn signal easier to use since the horn button is covered;and, the horn (which I don't use very often...) is below the turn signal and large. The OEM design is "awk" at best.Rudimentary and ugly...but really cool. I struggle to find the horn button too.
That is a cool idea and would be even cooler if executed better. I'd buy one. At a minimum, paint it black.
Yeah, the stock button is awkward.....I find I have to be careful not to beep the horn while using the turn signals with gloves on..I much prefer the controls on my Harley..big buttons and the turn signals are one on each side like they should be..to be fair though, this bike is much more appropriate than my Harley when I'm looking to be a hooligan:eagerness:Right now, it makes the turn signal easier to use since the horn button is covered;and, the horn (which I don't use very often...) is below the turn signal and large.

Took 3? We all know where it is located... With gloves and an urgent situation it's very easy to hit the turn signal getting to the horn and vice versa... If your thumb slips off the turn signal on a right turn, you end up blowing the horn... Clearly up to you though... If you like the setup, keep it? Practice helps some; good design helps everyone.To each his own...
After 3 rides I knew where it was....
Same here plus over the flash to pass switch as I use them in tandem for/to prevent those oh shit situations to get their attention.Thats a really cool idea. I usually hover my thumb over the horn button while in heavy traffic. Doesn't matter if its a car truck or bike...everyone is a shit ass driver in my town except a select few.
Very clever idea. I use the bright flash too often and the horn hardly ever... which probably explains why I couldn't get the horn to work without a turn signal... I still have the original sheet metal mod after a few years and it still works.Old post on this one. Open switch gear and swap flash to pass switch wires with horn. Simple solder job and flash lever becomes horn for quick emergency access. Works great.
