Horn wires and hardware

Identified the proper wire to power the missing horns. Blue must be the new pink! Headed to ACE and spent a bunch on stainless steel metric hardware to get the Windjammer IV mounted!

Flashers... !

Makes good sense. But I'd not need an additional set of lights for the 4 ways, correct? Just a place to mount the flasher itself?

Or will the added flasher (circuit to pulse the 12v) control the...

Thanks,...

Replacing!

Thanks, all. Advice taken...I'll replace all 4 pilot jets.

Pilot Jet...salvage?

I had to work to get the #4 pilot jet out. But the others came out easily.

I used penetrating oil and an Easy-Out...clearly the PO had trouble too, as the screw slot was pretty shot.
