Denali Plug-N-Play Wiring Harness For Dual-Tone Airhorns
Making it easy
I'll admit, the instructions weren't very clear and this was compounded by the fact I really have no electrical knowledge. When I got the harness I felt a bit overwhelmed. With that said, it really is easy. There's a bundle of two wires that you plug into the wires that went to your old speaker wires. You simply unplug the speaker wires from the speakers and plug them into this product. You connect the positive wire to the battery and run it to the Denali. Then you connect the ground from the denali to the bike with the included piece. The only problem I had was thinking I could ground the horn to the bike, which didn't work, but I had no problem once I grounded it to the engine. I spent 3 hours deciding where to mount the horn and fabricating a bracket but only spent 30 minutes installing since I had this harness.

5 WIRES, NO SPLICING SUPER EASY!
I have read the other reviews on this product and I am more confused by their reviews than the actual product.
Super simple installation, 2 wires go to your old horn positive and negative. 1 wire goes to the positive on your battery. 1 wire goes to the positive on the new air horn. 1 wire goes from the negative on the new air horn to any screw/bolt on the frame.
Turn key, press horn button, scare traffic, it's that easy.

Ground is short. You will still need loom unless you don't mind looking at a bright red wire running down to the horn. If I am going to install something I would prefer it looked OEM. The kit gives you most of what you need and it performs well. I would still recommend it.

If you are buying the Denali Sound Bomb air horn, go ahead and get this companion product. It will simplify your installation greatly.

Plug & Play!?
So I'm not sure how it is even remotely called a plug and play kit. Sure, it has connectors for the horn end, and an inline fuse holder, but plug and play would imply I would have everything required to install, especially for the price. Well, off I go to the hardware store to buy wire taps! I wish I bought the do-it-yourself kit, by the looks of it that has everything you need, and cheaper for some bizarre reason.

Makes installing the Soundbomb much easier
Only problem I had is the relay stayed open the first time I sounded the horn. Removing and reseating the relay fixed everything

Makes your air horn install easy
If you spent the money on the Sound Bomb why not install it the right way that thing pulls more amps then the stock horn button can handle so you need a relay to protect that button (IT WILL BURN ) plus a fuse to protect everything else. Buying this kit allows you to have a clean professional looking wiring install that you can do yourself.

Plug-n-Play or Cut-n-Splice....its the latter!
Why is it that companies inaccurately represent products by using the term plug-n-play, when in actuality you need to cut-n-splice....as in the case of this product. When I unplugged the OEM horn on my 2013 1200GSA, I immediately realized the harness isn't even remotely close to the BMW plug, so I called Twisted Throttle (distributes this and the Denali horn). Great, friendly people at Twisted (as here at Revzilla), yet right up front they said oh yeah, you'll need to cut, splice, pick up connectors from a hardware store that were not included, and then try to shoe-horn, er, the horn, into the OEM position (b/c this horn is significantly larger, and there's little room behind the fork tubes). Not to mention the Twisted instructions were approaching the terrible instructions of the German translations that come with Touratech products. All this said, I cannot recommend these products unless they revise their advert to say splicing WILL BE required, and rewrite the instructions (which btw the Twisted rep admitted were incorrect/misleading). Won't know about performance/durability until its been on the bike for a little while, and hoping that BMW sells a make plug with pigtails so I won't have to cut-n-splice in order to plug-n-play. Ugh.
