Replacing the stock horn.

Has anyone replaced the stock horn with a Denali soundbomb? Does the NM4 have enough AMP draw to use it? Thanks.

The stock connectors will not work as the circuit does not have the amps to drive the soundblaster. You'll need to install a relay triggered from the stock connectors that drives the horn from a line from the battery.



There are plenty of small relays on the market that can do the job. I set up my own switched power for heated grips, USB charger, and driving lights using this little relay:






Something similar can easily power a horn.


Here is a picture of the relay installed so you can get an idea of how small it is.



2015 NM4. took delivery on Sept 13, 2014

Mods: homemade bracket for topcase, modified NC700S center stand, rear brake at left hand using Silver Wing master cylinder, Amps Rugged Mount 12v GPS charger/mount, USB power at handlebars, Hot Grips heated grips, Clearwater Glenda LED driving lights, SAE power port, Mo-Door hidden garage opener, Custom seat foam and gel pad with hot weather top pad.

Freeway Blaster

I replaced the stock horn on both our NM4's (2015 and 2017) with the FIAMM Freeway Blaster, Model # 72112. Very straightforward, with no electrical or mechanical mods required. Remove electrical connectors and unscrew old and attach leads to new horn and screw in... Easy, fast, cheap and effective!
