07/25/19 - Due to the engine sidecase redesign, be advised if you are mounting one of the Stebel/Denali air horns and are going to use the Stebel/Denali accessory CB500 engine mounting bracket on a 2019 and later bike, you will need the following:

A Spacer: Length, 14mm max.; ID, 6mm; OD, 11mm min - 12mm max.  Suggest aluminum or SS to prevent rust.
Two new bolts that need to be 45mm long.

These are OEM Honda part numbers that will match the existing bolt heads and color.
2 BOLTS, FLANGE SOCKET (6X45) 90033-MCH-000 $1.71
Honda Motorcycle 2017 VT1300CXA 6A - FURY Left Crankcase Cover

Thanks for that - I have had the Denali on both my VStrom & Ktm 790 ADV, planning to install on new CB500X.

A forum for another brand of bike that I owned in the past had great discussions about horns. Those with loud aftermarket horns called themselves the CYFHMN (Can You F@#$%#@ Hear Me Now) club. I've thought many times about upgrading the meep-meep to something more intimidating.
Ill think of something later

After using the CB500X horn a couple of times,I rapidly came to the conclusion it was a poor excuse for letting anyone know of your presence.
I read few reviews and went a Denali Mini Sound Bomb,with a deep and louder sound it's a huge improvement on my stock 2020 bike horn,though the muppet driving the Range Rover who pulled out in front of me wasn't when I let him know of my presence by his driver's side door as I overtook him,after having to swerve around his hulk :156:

I have the large Soundbomb on my R1200GS and its sounds like a semi truck but it pulls a lot of amps, too. Is the Mini Soundbomb a direct wire-on and bolt in? And do you use the same OEM bracket on the Honda?

The Soundbomb (or any variant with a compressor) pulls 20 amps & needs a relay but works great.
Any attempt to use without relay will quickly fry contacts in your original switch = many $$$.
I've had it on my VStrom & KTM, will be adding it to the 550x soon.

I've just bought an Oxford foghorn 4.5 amps plug and play.  :002:
