You know this story if you ride a Versys 300: a horn that's so puny, it is a legitimate safety concern—especially at freeway speeds.
So began my research into a horn without a lot of fuss.
Initially, I was getting nervous with all of the reviews about air horns, wiring harnesses, and relays, being that I have a motorcycle that's not exactly spacious when it comes to accommodating mods.
Good news to report: The "mini" makes all the difference in the world.
The Denali Soundbomb mini is different than the Denali Soundbomb. It's not an air horn (which tend to run larger and, as I understand it, need additional wiring to deal with significant amp usage). The Soundbomb mini is compact and was stupid easy to install (see photo for placement). I used the mount that came in the box with my OEM bolt to attach it exactly where the old horn was, and as the well-written instructions state, placing it dead center with the horn facing down allows for plenty of clearance when the handlebars are turned fully left or right—even while breaking. The mini only draws 5 amps, but the sound caught me off-guard in a good way: It's way louder than the OEM horn.
If you're not interested in going 12 rounds setting up an air horn in cramped spaces, drop a few bucks on this baby. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Of course, I don't work for Denali and received zero incentives for posting this (other than helping my fellow riders
