Installed: DENALI SoundBomb Split Dual-Tone Air Horn (FINALLY)

Just as I was about to give-up, I FINALLY found a way to mount my Denali horn on my '14 CBR500r without major modifications, fabrications, or cutting up any fairings. It was pretty difficult finding finding something workable, as the inner fairing pieces take up most of the usable space under the fairings. In the end I had to use zip-ties, as there was no good place to use mounting bolts. The only permanent thing I had to do to the bike was to drill two holes in the bottom of the battery tray to thread zip-ties. Wiring was pretty simple, and I used the 5th circuit on my PDM60 (the only circuit that can be programed up to 20amps).

Here's the compressor. You can see the air-hose routed to the rear, as well as the ground wire terminated at the bolt directly bellow it. It BARELY clears the fairing, and may even be touching the inner fairing piece, but shouldn't be a problem. There was NO room on the left side, but if non-CA bikes don't have an EVAP canister, that would be a good spot for it too. Mine is CA version.

A couple shots of the horn. I reinstalled the left passenger peg after taking the picture. I pointed the opening forward to avoid junk kicked up from the rear tire. According to initial tests there are no clearance issues, but will test more extensively when I can borrow wife's weight. The air-hose was the perfect length.

Uau... Did you make any modification to the eletrical connections ?
I had something similar on my old custom bikes, but it was those sail horns, and mine was about 1 meter long.But the principle is the same: one air compressor that sends the air to the horn. (picture attached)

It drains a lot of current, so I had to make separate electrical wires and connections, I also used a relay so that it did not drains the current from the bikes wires.

Basically wired as instructed, but through my power distribution gadget. Denali came with a relay.

That's a creative way to spell Kawi... hurt my brain. Nice horn.
