Siting louder horn

Has anyone got any advice or images as to where to mount a louder horn such as the Denali sound bomb

I know this is not the answer to your question, but if you can't find a place for the Sound Bomb, I fitted a Sound Bomb Mini - it fits in the same place as the OEM horn and has the same electrical attachments. It is MUCH louder than the OEM horn. Takes less than 5 minutes to fit and would be a good alternative if you can't find a good place for the full size Sound Bomb.

Is it pretty much plug and play?

Stebel Magnum low tone horn fits in the oe location virtually perfect with a small bit of tweaking to the connections.

Simples.

Yes, it is 100% plug and play. The electrical connections are the same as the OEM and it mounts on the OEM hole with OEM hardware.

An alternative choiceÖ Highly recommended and very effective, have used on various bikes.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12v-Single...IAAOSwiDFYLvOH

eBay item number: 401227866026

The Ring REH100/300 at 112 dB certainly gets noticed, sounds more like a truck than a motorcycle. For me certainly improves safety over stock horn.
Very simple job to swap over with existing horn.

At £11.54 including delivery it is a small price to pay for such an improvement. Although inexpensive, because it is heavily discounted, it is a quality item from a reputable manufacturer of horns delivering a 112dB

For cost, benefit and fit (very quick) I doubt there is much out there to match this horn.

I have found that Denali produce a bike specific bracket for the Denali Soundbomb on the AT. Part No DENHMT.01.10200. UK buyers can now get it from rg-racing.com in the uk for £23.95 delivered. It fits very neatly on the left of the cyclinder head. The soundbomb does need a relay but the volume is like that of a small truck.
