    Sound bomb mini install on a 2017 XRX

    I couldnít find any useful information on where to install a Denali Sound Bomb Mini on my bike so I thought Iíd share my experience.  It will fit inside the front beak of the 2017 XRX with a bit of modification and gentle persuasion.  First, I ground off the flang on the front of the horn (just the 3-4mm flared bit) then mounted it with the electrical contacts facing down using the supplied strip bracket and the original horn mounting point.  Getting the beak back on was a bit fiddle but, itís on and it works!  The horn is hidden out of sight so itís a neat install.

    Here you go.  As you can see, I ground off the bottom and side flanges so the nose cowling would fit over the unit.  The original horn connectors are too large to attach to the Denali in this location so I made a couple of extensions (and took the opportunity to add a branch off the +ve lead to power the GPS).

    The sound bomb will not fit in that position if the bike has crash bars that cross under the beak (for example Heed bars).
    There is no enough gap between the underside of the beak and the top of the bar.

    Roger that K1W1.

    I have Heed bars and I've been thinking of changing the pitiful horn that came with the Tiger.

    But with the Heed bar installed it's just too tight for any type of horn besides the OEM type pancake horn.  :004:

    I used this bracket, it's made for the Tiger 800. Easy to install without any modifications.
