I have been looking at that also. My question is, does it draw any current in the ignition sensing circuit while the bike is off? Some items like this draw current that added to the bikes normal ignition off 17 to 20 milli amp draw will cause problems. And if you put in one of the loud horns you will still need power to it via a relay as they draw 25 amps or so. You can't run that through a switch anyway. Pretty interesting though. (something that BMW should build into the bikes anyway for owner use.)

I know of at least a couple folks on the K16 forum who have -- pretty good user reviews.

On the horns, pairing two 15A circuits would cover a 25A load without the need for a separate relay.

On the other hand, I have my horns on their own dedicated, relay-equipped circuit.
