Hi there, Looking to upgrade the stock horn, I got the Denali Sound Bomb Mini. Unfortunately quite disappointed. Not louder than stock and sounds like it caught a cold. Maybe it is defective? Could not upload video as MOV extensions are not allowed. Appreciate your comments if you have installed the DSBM. Cheers
Cost effective horn replacement
A pretty rubbish Sunday's weather drove me to the garage to work on my 9T. One of my jobs was to upgrade the frankly hopeless and embarrassing horn to a cost effective alternative. Happy to admit I’m not as mechanically competent as some forum members so I went for a replacement that would fit in the same space as the original without modding. Chose a single note AM80S FIAMM which cost a whopping £12 and came with two fitments, pin and spade, the former fitted straight to the original loom connector. The horn fitted onto the original bracket with a little persuasion and I just had to change the nut to fit the FIAMM threaded bolt. (6mm I think) A bit fiddly because it’s tight in there (I raised the petrol tank to give better access) but well worth it for a much louder sound. Will post a video of anyone is interested to hear.
Agree with you. But dont waste money on the denali mini. The denali proper seems to be a real bomb. But install a bit more involved.Gotta get me one of these. The horn that comes with the bike is very embarrassing. I cannot believe BMW would want to associate a heritage bike with that emasculated mmeeeeep ...
You glide down the road with that impressive boxer engine sound, only to undo your grand entry with a honk comparable to a vespa.
