Default Horn

Hi.
Not sure if this belongs in accessories, but I'll give it a shot.
I ordered a cowbell horn to replace the stock horn on my XL883C, which is mounted on the front of the frame.
My question: the kit says it will fit the bike, but does it account for the choke knob, which is mounted where the new horn will go?
Thanks

I did this on my '05 883. If you got the kit to add the side mounted horn, then yes, it includes a bracket to allow the fitting of the horn as well as the enrichener. In fact it includes several brackets to cater for bikes over many years. I sold all the parts I didn't need on eBay, and recouped a large part of the cost of the kit!
