Chose the Screaming Banshee "Shockwave" model because;
1. It is a progressive, 2/Two Stage Horn.
Screaming Banshee is easy to use with simple, intuitive operation. Simply tap your horn button to "beep" (Friendly mode) or hold for 0.15 sec to deliver a pulsating blast of the Shockwaves air horn while flashing the high beam headlights (Angry mode!). Can be heard from 3 blocks away!
It's also the loudest Air Horn available for a Motorcycle.
2. Installation is simple - no relays, no extra wiring or connectors to buy.
3. The Horn can also be wired to your Headlight so when you sound the Horn it causes the Lights* to Flash giving Drivers a visual warning also.
*for $69 you can also buy a high intensity, 6 inch x 2 inch LED Light Bar that offers even more visual warning to distracted drivers (& for owners that don't want to tap into their existing headlight wiring).
The only reason I didnt purchase the LED Light Bar is because my bike is Mint Stock & I want to add everything else first.
4. It was more money than the Biggest Denali but I think this is the best unit out there for the two features above.
I was told for our Z1000's they could be mounted behind the left fairing - I also ordered the Longer Flat Mounting Bracket because they suggested it is easier to bend & modify just in case.
Hope this helps other Members out there ...
