Received my order today from R&G. All looks very good quality and will help keep the bike intact and protected, which is my main priority for now. Will post pictures once all installed. Figured out the front fender after watching a YouTube video. The Denali soundbomb ďminiĒ is not so mini in your hand but will still fit fine in the oem spot. Canít wait to hear the noise difference

Denali mini could be a tight fit on full left lock - will be interested in how you get on as it is on my wanted list. I managed the fenda extender with mudguard in situ. but I had the pyramid version which could be stuck on before I used the rivets.

I also went for rear hugger (in white natch!) which I further extended at the front to protect the rear shock from road muck. It was my second one as first cracked when I put it on and in use due to stresses (drilled holes weren't in correct place). I did feedback to the designer at Pyramid when they gave me another one. I had to extend holes a few mm then mount on rubber washers but seems good now. No idea if they have taken into account.

Denali supply a purpose made bracket for the AT to mount the Soundbomb on theLH side of the engine. It works well and is fairly unobtrusive.

I will ask before I order.

If you loosen the bar clamps the rubber in the risers may spring back to normal position, if that's what you're seeing.

Just checked, seems it might be a tightish fit but should be okay. The Denali mini is wide in diameter but not massively thick at the top, where it will be closest to the fork. They supply also a new mounting double plate metal thingy, which I think is slightly longer than the oem one so should bring the horn a bit lower. I'll try installing tonight if I have time and will update.


The R&G fenda extender also has the sticky tape, but I'll remove the fender anyway to see how it works and do a clean install. I want to put some sikaflex ebt on the inside joint too so it will stop dirty water leaking through the tape over the fenda extender and will also dampen any vibration.

Just to clarify:
If you mean left hand side on the actual side of the bike then I think you mean the bracket for the full Denali Soundbomb 120db version?. That looks good and is probably ridiculously loud but was more expensive and requires additional wiring, not plug and play.


If you mean the left hand side of the radiator at the front, then yes, the 2 layer metal bracket supplied should be a bit longer to increase clearance.

If you go for different ones, make sure they actually rise up too and not just out or on the right side you'll have clearance issues with the throttle cables. If you have the 2018 model with tbw you'll be fine with any. These come in singles, there are some cheaper ones in pairs, but these looked good and work well.
