'08 K 1200 S Horn install

Looking to get rid of the scooter horn,,,2008 K 1200 S. I have a set of the dual Fiamms but kinda gave up squeezing them under the fairing. I'm open to anything.....and was looking into the Denali horn. Looks like it's all about finding / making a bracket for either horn set. Any ideas? Right or left side?

Re: '08 K 1200 S Horn install

If you are going to go with the fiamms, put one where the stock horn is and the other as the air horn is mounted in one of the posts. You will need to use a relay to give them enough power to work. BTW, in a test a couple of years ago in MCN, the two fiamms were louder than the air horns. I had an air horn for years on my K but finally replaced it with the fiamms. The air horn wouldn't hold pressure below 70 degrees needing "time" to pressurize before sounding so I went with the piezo electric fiamms. They always work!

The mini air horn will make a Texas buzzard take flight at 300 feet!
