Well I finally did it, I think their have been other posts about this but I went about it a different way..
I didn't want to tap the bikes power, and then do this crazy system with the highbeams or whatever so I went low budget.
The other problem was my garage door opener was 3v not a 12v like all the people who do the write-ups have.
Here is how it went down.
1) My garage door opener stopped working, so I went out and bought a new one, and I was left with this non-operational door opener. After fiddling with it, a soldering gun, and some spare time I finally got it working. Alas I had killed the OEM container, So it was time to Mod.
-repaired garage door opener
-radio shack project box
-radio shack 2 AA battery holder
-radio shack momentary black push button switch
-some thin wiring
-and some spare time.
3) I took the small board 1" x 2" and soldered 2 wires to wear the switch connects (for my new switch)
4) put the board into the project box, then solder the battery wires to the board.
5) test to see if it works - touch the two wires together with batteries in - garage door should open
6) glue board into place, glue wholes drilled for wires out of box shut (weather proofing)
7) install into bike - I have space just below my windscreen behind the fairing, so I velcroed my box and battery box in their (it is easily accesible) and then ran my wires to the front.
8) I picked a spot in the cluster area where there were some other buttons and installed my small little switch..
9) and presto I now have my garage door opener intergrated onto my bike.
Pro - it is easily removable, I can disable it by removing the batteries, no more carrying around a garage door opener
Cons - I had to drill a whole into my fairing... but who cares other mods are done to bikes that require drilling, and this is such a small difference no one will notice.
