My instructions say install compressor 8-10" from where horns will be mounted. I cannot find room to mount compressor(hidden) on the front of the bike. However i have seen many gl1500's with horns under front faring. Where are ya'll mounting compressor? i tried under either side pocket/compartment. Not enough room
Thanks in advance, Skip

i put my compressor behind the right turn signal in the faring and ran the hose through the hot air outlet for the radiator on the right side. i made a bracket out of aluminum stock 1''x 1/16 about 8'' long

you can remove the right side pocket and put the compressor in front of the pocket close to the turn signal i used silicon to stick it to the inside of the fairing and tape to hold it in place til the silicon was dry

Thanks, i'll try that again to see if i didnt see a way the other day, but it did not look like my comp would fit in there. I guess, its possible, my compressor is bigger than yours.
Thanks again, Skip

On my 97 SE I have the two air horns mounted in front, under the fairing, above the front fender.

I removed the left fairing pocket and mounted the compressor in front of it, there is room in there. I then routed the air hose to the horns through a hole drilled through the tupperware.

Love my air horns and they are right in the front where they project the sound nicely.
