    Aux horn - fitting location

    Rather stupidly, whilst at the NEC Bike Show I bought a replacement horn for the Cr, a Denali Soundbomb Mini, without actually checking on where it might be located.

    The standard horn is hidden on lhs (as you sit on the bike) of the headstock partially behind a piece of plastic fairing and there doesn't appear to be enough room to mount the Denali.

    Has anyone fitted a replacement horn and if so, where did you mount it please (with pics if possible)?

    Cheers.

    I bought the exact same horn months ago, and never realised it was that big until it arrived  :009:

    I am still to fit it as I was hoping it would be a simple swap out :087:

    I've fitted the denali sound bomb mini, nice and noisy. Just made up a couple of extension leads to go from the original connections and fitted the horn on the left side and used one of the air intake bolts to mount it. Someone already did this before and posted photos on here somewhere, just cant find them right now.

    Thanks m8.

    If you find them, please post a link or otherwise, could you take some pics of your own?

    Thanks, seen it.

    No issues with water ingress?

    No it points down so not collecting water and has been ridden in rain.

    I have just fitted a Denali sound bomb on my 800x as others have done I made an extension cable from the original connectors and as i have recently fitted a set of Givi crash bars it tucked in nicely on the left hand side in front of the bars with the top mounting screw for the metal lower side plate used as a mounting point well worth fitting as the horn is nice and loud pics attached

    hope this helps
    cheers Ian

    That looks good Robbo, thanks.

    Can anyone point to a useable guide to removing the panels? I had a look the other week and ran out of patience. I know the white/red pointy fairing panel needs to be pulled backwards to release it, but what else needs to be done before & after that as mine wouldn't budge despite trying to confirm I'd removed all attaching bolts.  :012:

    I also need to get at the self-cancelling indicator block to rid myself of their dangerously stupid antics.  :230:

    Cheers.  :031:
