With the wiring that is needed to be completed for the Screaming Banshee!
I've just fitted one, and put it in the exact same place as shown in the video, but there is no need to fit the 2 blue wires for the horn directly to the existing horn itself.
When you have the left fairing off, the cable that comes from the left handlebar switch block has 2 plugs on the end of it.
A clear coloured one, which has the dark blue cable for high beam, and a red plug and this has 2 wires in it that are the horn wires.
Tap in to these directly for your connection to the horn and you are all good to go.
The only wire I had to install at any distance from the Banshee controller was the red wire going to the battery +
Makes for a very neat install.
Also, when tapping in to the wires from the switch block make sure that you tap into the wire on the loom side of the plug and socket not the switch block side.
This way, if you have to replace the switch block, you do not need to re-do the tapping.
(Very unlikely that you will need to replace the loom, but a damaged switch block after an accident is more likely)
