The one place relays will really make a difference is on the headlight main and dip. Use a direct feed to the relay from the battery and the main and dip feeds from the switch to control the relays and you get much brighter lights.

Good idea ! Can you count on a normal relay to cope with being switched on semi permanently, or does it require a specific type ?

Normal 30A relay will be fine. That's 30A contact rating.

Actually not for the puny original horns, I had to fit one for my twin Fiamm 112 dB windowblastersEvil SmileEvil Smile

Yes I have retro fitted a relay to the horns as well, sorry I was thinking of my own bike there
