    Washed thoroughly. Used
    Motomax polish and waxpol dashboard


    Changed the normal bulbs to leds. Console looks bright n white.

    LED above number plate. Looks cool.

    LED pilot lamps.


    Other modifications:
    Replaced stock 35w bulb with 55/60w xtreme vision as electricals are already DC.
    Twin horns of different frequencies.

    I wish mine was also DC, I intend to upgrade the lighting, but it required changing the stator and and rr, so will keep it aside for a while now.

    Im not much of a cleaning type, but might give it a shot before taking it to B'lore. And can ya explain about the dual horns? Are they from the P220? And how did you connect them?

    Out of the 2 horns, one is stock(2A) and the other is Roots(3A). As the both are of different frequencies, they sound good like pulsars and even louder. Both are mounted in same place as stock. They are connected in 'Parallel'.
    This is much reliable setup. I am using it since a year and never went off.
    (The other way of connection is relay setup.)

    Just a doubt, if we give parallel, then wont the output of the original horn go down? I have a relay setup with windtones on my ZMA. And what's the price of the roots horn???

    In series circuit, voltage will be distributed equally (6v+6v) while current will remain same 5A across both.
    In parallel, voltage will be same 12v across both while current be distributed equally (2.5A +2.5A).
    So i made it parallel. Never tried series.
    Relay setup directly draws current from battery hence it will honk louder.
    I had roots installed with relay on my 8.5yrs old Activa. Unfortunately, one horn got weak after few years. The other one is mounted on my bike.
    Its some 6-7 years old, so i don't remember its cost.

    I see a drained battery in future. What's the amperage rating of the horn?
    I am back!

    Oh, you mean the white thingi that looks like a mesh filter? Its the filter that collects metal particles in the oil.


    Yeah abnd about the mileage, I can go one side to Bangalore for 650~700rs fuel. That's 750~800kms approx depending on route fluctuations.
