    I had the split Denali sound bomb two tone fitted to my bike, needed a relay and it was a bit of a pig to fit, (says my mate 😬) remove the original pathetic horn, and jam the new Denali in its place with a home made  bracket, fit the compressor on the other side of the fairing using the plastic piping supplied to join the horn to its air source, again with a home made bracket, replace the fairing bits and bob, stop swearing and threatening retribution against the bikes designer,  who thought it was ok to fit such a sh#te horn to a magnificent beast like the Trophy, then start frightening cars and lorrys with your new BEAST of a klaxon 😈

    Good timing for your question as just a few days ago I saw a YouTube video on the fitting of a Denali horn to a Trophy. Enjoy!

    I fitted the mini version.  You don't need to take off all the plastic but just gain access to the underbelly of the fairing. The mini is a direct replacement to the original (and pathetic) horn but you don't need to do any extra electrical work,relays etc. It is a very snug but does fit. Just one tip, don't make the mistake I made, if you fit one of these, make sure you test it with the engine running otherwise, it doesn't work correctly and you won't make the mistake I made by refitting twice thinking there was a fault somewhere :156: The sound quality is significant better and louder than the original but not nearly as loud as the bigger version.

    The spilt sound bomb was not in the picture as I also saw the video & it looked a lot of trouble too so I was thinking of the sound bomb compact but if the mini just fits then the compact will not, so one choice it's the mini for me.

    I did the same thing, tested it without the engine running and took me a while to figure out the problem.  I installed it on the back side of the OEM bracket with a longer bolt and a nut on back side.  Sounds more like  a car horn now.

    I fitted a FIAMM Highway Blaster Low Tone Horn, which has the same dB rating as the Denali Mini, and although I was satisfied with the greatly improved volume and tone vs. the OEM horn at a standstill, I was exceedingly disappointed to discover that the average distracted commuter still cannot hear it. I am convinced that the horn location, both very low and hidden inside the fairing, prevents the sound from being directed towards the ears of said distracted commuter.

    I am convinced that an air horn and/ or higher placement is necessary to my long term safety. A definite project if I survive until the 10k Service and fairing removal...
