Title: HOOTERS ALERT!!!!
Post by: Firecoast on June 05, 2014, 03:10:31 pm
Now that I have your attention!  :biggrin:

The hooter on my 640 isn't working... either by it not being there completely or something has gone wrong.

Will go have a look when I find the time, but my question is... are these devices fairly universal or does one need to order one specifically for the 640?

Mind you, I don't like using one, but it's just a nice to have.  :biggrin: :biggrin:

Most likely a bad connector, or some gunk in the hooter unit itself.

M, if it is similar in size to the smaller automobile ones, then you can safely get one from Midas.

You might have to swop over the springy mounting bracket, though. That will merely need a spanner and plasters for two skinned knuckles... unless you can flutter your eyelids and get unsuspecting hero-worshipper to skin his knuckles for you.

Bottom line is... nothing special about the bike hooter. Just the size is important, that's all. It must fit. They are all 12v and all have a similar frequency range.

I have tried that amongst other things  >:D and all Throttle does is roll his eyes  :imaposer:

The hooter bracket on my 640 has broken off twice.
The first time it was still hanging on the wires, second time it was gone.

I just love hooters.

But they must work. Loud sounds also fine, when you press them a few times, but not too loud, neighbours tend to get aggro then.
