Can you post some shots a bit farther away? I've heard it on other bikes and are interested on how it's installed specifically on the scrambler. Did you use the existing bracket that was on the bike?

Haven't had time to install yet :(
I'm going to fabricate a small 90deg bracket to mount it tight to the frame, just ahead of and inside the right side MotoSlider.

Wonder how many I could wire up before I started burning fuses? ;)

Yeti, did you need a relay when you installed the Soundbomb Mini? I'm worried that if I simply replace the stock horn without any additional fuses/ relay/ or wire harness kits, the existing wiring is not built to handle the power draw of 5 amps and consequently cause some electrical issues (e.g. flickering of headlights when horn is blown, etc) Thanks in advance!

I did not add a relay or any wiring changes

Have not noticed any issues... yet

Might look at installing heat shield and better wiring next maintenance visit

So no fuses burnt after all? As it's virtually in the same position as the original horn, why would you consider a heat shield? Also, it seems you're a bit worried of existing wiring? Is this because you feel that the power draw is too much for the original wiring? Thanks for your quick response.

See picture I posted earlier.
The heat shield will be mounted to the lead Cylinder exhaust header. Maybe on rear pipe too. Lots of heat there and the horn is plastic body. Nothing has melted but I think I'd get more life out of the horn if it was better shielded from the headers

Got it. My exhaust already has a heat shield so hopefully it wont affect the sb mini. I'll follow your lead and just install it as is wih any additional fuses. Will post once I find an L bracket to mount it. Thanks!

Looks nice!

I've got a spare Hella Supertone (118 dB disc horn) at home from when I mounted one to my old BMW, and swapping that for the stock one is going to be one of the firs things I do. The Supertones are sold in pairs (and they're tuned to a dissonant interval, sot they sound more "annoying" on purpose) but I don't know that I want to dick around with trying to get them both mounted. A single one should be a fairly simple replacement for the factory disc horn, I think.
