Denali mini sound bomb mod

Hi All,


Bc2 here need some help with the Denali Mini Sound Bomb install. I attempted to install the new horn however there wasn't enough room under the dash where the old the stock horn was mounted. I tried using an offset and I decided against moving the ABS wiring. I seem to remember someone might have already done this and they were able to an existing whole in the frame to mount the new horn. Any help or suggestions appreciated. On the Brightside I was able to add the OEM frame sliders, 12 volt receptacle and R&G radiator and header protectors. Since this was my first time removing the fairings kudos to Jon Long and his DIY video.

I just bought a 2017 Ninja 1000 and was thinking about getting the same horn. The OEM doesnít even seem to be heard in traffic. I can see where the original horn is mounted and it does look tight. Ditto on the Jonathan Long vids. I just put on the Kawasaki frame sliders and his videos made it relatively easy.

I dug up an old post by forum participant "Bikram" who had previously posted on the Denali Mini. It sounded like when you remove the right side fairing to expose the OEM horn there are some pre-drilled holes in the steering mount to use. When you purchase the mini it comes with a couple brackets and a 10mm nut. What I gather is that you bend one of the brackets into an "L" shape and attach one end to the steering mount and the other to the mini. Bikram states as per the instructions, that the mini's trumpet needs be pointed down. Also, instead of mounting it in the horizontal plane as was the OEM horn you mount it in the vertical position. I believe oriented from front to back. So, my winter project will be to remove the fairings again and see what I can do. Also, via the Dave Moss tutorials set my suspension.

Cool Bc2. Thanks for the info, and the mention of the ďDave Moss tutorials.Ē Iíll be checking into that now as well. Back to the horn though, yeah the OEM unit has to go! Iíll do some more searching around but the Denali SB Mini is the one that stuck out to me as a possible replacement as well.

Next time I'm in there I will. Also, I should have plugged in the mini just to compare the sound. Doing some chain maintenance this week clean and tension. Breakfast ride this coming Saturday, I hope the weather holds out here in New England looking forward to seeing more foliage. All for now...

Also, there is a guy on YouTube named, "Wrenchie" who has some interesting videos on the N1K. There is another guy I follow at "Dellboy's Garage" that has some good info too, but not N1K specific.

Do also check out the PIAA Slimline horn, comparable to the Denali Mini
