    Mount a Denali Soundbomb compact unit on a 2009 R1200R

    I ride a 2009 R1200R. I received a Denali soundbomb compact 1 piece horn and am looking for a suitable site to install it. The location of the original horn looks a little tight. Not sure I can get it in there even with fabbed brackets. An alternative is to remove the cannister and use that space. I know I can probably swap out the one I have for the split system but prefer to use the one I was given.
    Any feedback is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Have a look at the bottom of the page in the “Similar Threads” pane. Looks like some help there.

    This is the OP. No, I'm not the guy on Facebook. I don't have a FB account.

    I looked on the Denali and Twisted Throttle sites and there is no mount offered for your bike, or any Hexhead/Camhead that I could see Looks like you are on your own for finding a place and method of attachment.

    I looked long and hard for a place to put a pair of Fiamm horns on my 2011 R1200R. Unless you want a crash bar mount, I think the the only place to put a larger horn is if you get rid of the charcoal canister and put the horn there.

    If you search for Nautilus mount on R1200RT that should get you close. On my 2017 it is a tight fit between the front forks. May need to make a new mounting strap with some donor metal, but that's not too difficult. May require a trip to Home Depot.

    OP - Soundbomb Installation complete !

    Thanks to all of you for your ideas and input.

    I did a canisterectomy and fashioned a suitable bracket for the horn using the canister bracket and another element I made up. It's a tight fit but it worked out fine.

    It's quite a horn and I'm sure it will turn some heads!

    Thanks again!

    Bill

    Good work, Bill!

    Would you take a few pics of the horn in place, and attach them so we can see how you did it?
