I think the two strips/bracket came with the Stebel TM80 horn I bought similar to this,

but you can quite easily make a 90 deg one out of a decent strip of metal.It's not the most elegant job I've done but it's been secure for over 4,000 miles and I didn't like the weedy stock Horn.




Here's a video and his seems to have the strip with it.Fast forward to over min,

PS
The Rad grill you can see I made out of a 15" Speaker grill

Using the,"Clutch Mantra" info here helped,

Also I recently fitted a new Clutch lifter/Actuator arm as mine had some slop in it.I found when I took the old one out it was missing some of the Ball bearings so serviced and chronicled the job here,

https://cx500.000webhostapp.com/SV650ClutchLifter.html

Pretty good now but I sometimes still have trouble getting into neutral from first until I blip the throttle.I tend to stay in 2nd when coming to a stop as I find easier just to tap it down into neutral.

Other than these occasional minor niggles I've found the SV gearbox to be superb.


Cost me £1.69 for the 1/8" ball bearings off eBay



Clutch matra fixed it. Just badly adjusted at the actuator end. Ta very much.

Nice one.It's definitely the,"Angle-of-the-Dangle" with these clutches
