    Anyone know why?

    Hello--I have recently purchased an air horn that fits onto our air filter housing in my M1009. However, I am having trouble orienting it so that it fits into the engine bay. If it is oriented towards the left front head light, it runs into the heater hose. If I orient it towards the right...
