Denali Sound Bomb Horn Install

Just thought I would share some pics of my Sound Bomb install.

I really wanted a louder horn but didn't like the bulk of the air horn and wanted to conceal it with out muffling it.

First pic, I separated the horn from the air motor. Then I trimmed the plastic and added zip tie holes.

2nd pic, I made a bracket for the motor. This was fairly precise measurements so the motor would just fit next to the fuel tank under the left faring without rubbing on anything.

3rd pic shows the motor mounted. I used some rubber backed washers to dampen the vibrations where it is mounted to the left faring bracket.

4th pic shows the completed install and wiring of the motor. I was able to use the factory horn wiring as the signal wire to the 30A relay.

5th pic shows the horn mounted to the left side frame. I routed the tubing from the motor back under the fuel tank and curved it back around to the horn.

I was really happy with the final outcome. The only visible part on the bike is the horn sitting on the frame next to the engine and it blends in nicely. This thing is loud. It really scares the cagers back into their own lane!

Nicely done - I and most of my riding buddies use these - some split, some (like me) ugly & exposed

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

Nice install!!! For those who are not as skilled at install I used this in place of stock horn. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...bomb-mini-horn Not as loud as air horn but it's way better than stock. Sounds like a 1970's american car horn. I made an "S" shaped bracket out of flat aluminum stock from Lowe's to extend lower and back the stock mounting point so it blends in well with the bike. I highly recommend this horn.

Yeah, I started with that horn. I really thought it was loud enough too. But we've had so much rain this winter I think the moisture killed it. I pushed the horn button and got nothing, then again and got a god-awful squawking noise and then that was it. It had blown its last. That is kind of why I wanted to try to mount the new horn up out of the wet under the faring.

I really like that idea! If I ever have a problem with the hose coming off, I will def make that mod. I just used a lot of zip ties and so far so good.

Installed the same horn in this same location. Took a little fabricating but it can be done with patience.
