Bosch dual windtone horn and 16 LED aux lights

Hello friends,

I installed these items on New Year's Day. Nice way to start 2020.

1. A BOSCH dual wind tone horn.
In India, using an air compressor horn is illegal for bikes and cars. But with the traffic being the way it is, one has to make one's presence felt for defensive driving. I install this horn set within a month or two of buying a new bike. It is a bit illegal on the streets in the sense that cars may use it but not bikes. Yet, I am able to persuade the traffic police to not give me a ticket by demo the mini toggle switch to select between the dual tone for highway and the single small diaphragm one for city use. The set was about $ 8.5 on Amazon India. Relay about $ 2.5 and the associated wiring about $ 3. The aircraft style toggle switch with inbuilt LED in the toggle arm was about $5.

2. Zana International crash bars.
About $ 125. Excellent value for money kit. https://www.zanainternational.com/le...-w/s-black.htm
3. Zana International fone mount
About $23. Again, very sturdy and excellent VFM. No nonsense installation behind the windscreen. https://www.zanainternational.com/ka...-gps-mount.htm
4. 16 LED auxiliary lights.
About $ 10. Large size. Not much focus. Again, the stock headlights of the V650 are really weak and I wanted something big and bright for people to see me properly on the highway. https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The micro toggle switch was about $2 for 5 pieces. https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
5. Autofy Fone Charger
About $ 25. Excellent fit and finish. On/off switch to prevent the gadget from consuming power on its own as also stop charging the fone when done. https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Dear onewizard,

Thank you for distributing the items as they should be on the forum. And my apologies for starting a thread about topics that might be existing already; I looked around a lot but could not find the exact thread and hence started a new thread.

I have replaced the spread beam LED lights with 40 watt spots. See the post here:
