Smile Horn Upgrade (LOUDER) - Any success?

Hi

I'm looking to upgrade to this louder horn Denali Soundbomb Split Dual Tone Air Horn

https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...-tone-air-horn

But dealer workshop not sure if it will fit on the bike (replace the stock horn + other half in another place)


- Has anyone upgraded to a good loud horn that fits and able to mount?


Initially wanted to get the Screaming Banshee but they said looked even bigger.

Appreciate if anyone had success with a horn that fits!

Thanks all!

This is the Fiamm Freeway Blaster Low Tone, available from Amazon for ~$16. It is on it's third motorcycle. It uses the stock wiring. It is louder than the meep-meep horn that Honda uses.

I see no reason why they wouldn't fit on the bike. Doesn't make much sense why it wouldn't. The 500 has less room than the 300 and I don't see why someone couldn't figure out some way to mount those horns.

Thanks guys,

Based on these 3 which do you think this will fit based on sizes?

Initially wanted to get this, but looks big

https://screaming-banshee.com/banshee-horn
L 3.7" x W 3.0" x H 4.9"

Then this
Denali SoundBomb Compact Dual-Tone Air Horn | TwistedThrottle.com
W 5.4 (137mm) x H 4.5 (116mm) x D 3.6 (86 mm)

Then considering the split version - compressor & acoustic unit split
DENALI SoundBomb Split Dual-Tone Air Horn | TwistedThrottle.com
(Compressor): 4.5" x 2.9" x 3.0"
(Acoustic Unit): 4.1" x 3.7" x 3.4"

Thanks!
