Denali Sound Bomb Mini
« on: December 21, 2018, 11:01:21 PM »
Got one of these little thingies to try out. Have people had any issues with a straight swap and current draw?

The loudness and current draw specs on that horn are the same as the FIAMM 72012 Low Note Replacement Horn I got for $13 at the local automotive parts house.  It will work as a direct swap for the OEM horn, no wiring changes needed.

Hi Guys - I have the Denali soundbomb fitted - the full airhorn model - relay is required but easy to fit.
A full kit is available  too from R & G and a special mount bracket for the X too.

I'm curious as to how the Denali air horn works. 

Does the horn sound immediately?  Does the horn have air pressure storage of some sort, or is there an air pump that provides air pressure immediately?  Will the horn sound for a long time, or only until air pressure storage is used up?

Instantly sounds and goes on and on, unit has a small compressor as part of unit. If you google for the wiring diagram or better still buy the complete kit its a simple diy job.

I have one.   I bought the Relay Wiring Loom from R&G at the same time and used that.   The Air Horn is great.    Certainly wakes people up if they are not paying attention.  As denislordm stated, the air compressor is instant.

The FIAMM low note is my standard replacement for Honda's "meep meep" OEM horn.  I have used it on all of our street bikes for the past 13+ years.  Unfortunately, my '99 Miata also uses the "meep meep" horn and there is not quite enough room to replace it. (and I'm lazy)

Thanks for all the responses. I'll get the thing fitted and, hopefully, be somewhat more audible that the roadrunner meep!

I installed the mini, the one I got only clicked and then popped the fuse. Current draw is 5A.

I changed it for the regular soundbomb, which is still waiting for install. It came with a crappy relay which died during initial testing (and yes, I was careful), so I ordered some Panasonic replacements. I did get the split unit as the CB500x is a relatively small bike with not a lot of space, in my view. When the relay worked, that air horn thing was loud and obnoxious. It annoyed SWMBO, so that means it's at least audible on the road.
