Bigger horn
on: February 27, 2016, 02:53:35 PM
Finally managed to find a solution.

nautilus mini electro magnetic low tone sound bomb

25 of your finest English squids

10 mins to fit

Connects straight to the existing bracket and the electrical connection is exactly the same as current so no looms to worry about

Got fed up with that squeaky parp that comes out of the OE item

Where from?

Did you fit it with a relay or does it use the similar current to the oem one?

It uses the existing 2 spade connectors so you literally disconnect the existing horn, remove it (1 bolt), bolt the new one on and connect the 2 spades to it - no need to touch the relay or remove tank / fairing panels.

Got it on eBay, new item made by Denali. It's also available direct from R&G racing

Good question!

Much louder and deeper in tone which seems to make it more invasive on ones lug holes

Fitting? Did you just access from under the front fairing up the forks? Or take off the fairing ? Looks tight in there?

The new unit is only marginally bigger than the original. No panels to remove, simply 1 bolt off to remove the honda part and bolt the Denali straight on - couldn't be simpler on the mk1 - it is advertised as compatible for the mk2 so assume it's as easy.

10 mins and 25 quid for a potential lifesaver - no brainer :085:

It does not fit the 2015 Crossrunner, there is no room for it. Been trying all afternoon given up now.
