We'd heard that there was debate about whether there was room for a Nautilus in the GTS and if so, was it where the old horn sat or behind the left knee pad? Merrily bought the airhorns online and did a lot of forum research, and Tony provided the engineering workshop.
In the morning they had worked out that they would have to pull the glove box cover off to get into the frame where Tony designed and built a bracket to secure the air horn to the scooter. He'd previously wired up yachts and had the tools required. Merrily and Tony had sorted out all the glitches and R&D and they were ready to go.
By the time I arrived they were reassembling the red GTS complete with functioning airhorn. It was now the yellow GTS's turn. Tony told me the proceedure
1) Remove the plastic Piaggio badge carefully and unscrew and remove the horn cover.
2) Disconnect the horn
3) Disconnect the lead to the parking light. Tape these leads to the side so they dont get lost behind the horn.
4) Unbolt & remove horn bracket
T&M discovered that Mr Vespa had left convienant bolts and brackets just right for the horn and relay unit to bolt into.
