Picked these up the other day. They are all original, in the original box with the purchase receipt. The purchaser paid a grand total of $29.95 in 1987. They bought from a Yamaha dealer in Illinois.

The horns were manufactured in 1979 and listed as the Vetter Corp. Windjammer IV Fiamm Horn option.

The Vetter horn option is mounted in the cavity within the Windjammer fairing, access being gained through the side pockets. The horn bolt - one on each site - behind the louvered portion of the leading edge lights.

I will scan the instructions and put them in the technical archive, as well as give Craig a copy for his site. The ones he has are only two pages. These instructions are 6 pages. The box says WJIV 100070043.

Let me just add, putting them in place may sound easy, but for those people with bigger hands, it isn't! They are louder than the stock GoldWing horns though.

When using these be sure to use a relay, run original horn wire to activate relay. They will eventually cook the horn switch button and innards. Don't ask how I know. I had a set on one of my bikes many years ago, LOUD was awesome. Kind of fun to wake up cage drivers now and then. Have a set of air horns on the GL1500 now, they really get attention fast!!!

Awesome, and 4 weeks early!;) Been needing this. When I installed the horns in the fairing on my 78 GL1000, I had found some information in one of the fairing manuals on Craig's site, but don't remember which one (CRS ya know.:eek:ops:) I managed to find another used set for my 76 GL1000, but due to lack of 'full' instructions and the close quarters of getting them in there, I've been putting it off. One problem now solved, now to find that elusive 'round tuit' and get it done.

Thanks much

When I installed mine, I never could get the relay to work correctly, so I just bought a new relay. Now if I could just get all 4 horns to work off of 1 button, I would be happy, happy, happy!

When I get to that point again, I'll let you know, but the WJ III that is going back on the bike might not accept the horns.
