I took apart one of my spare garage door remotes, and wired its switches into some pushbuttons that I mounted on the fairing. I mounted the remote itself inside the fairing.

However, one of the neatest and most elegant solutions I have seen is this. You wire the receiver in series with your inside pushbutton, so it can trigger the garage door. The transmitter gets wired to your high beams. When you get close to your house, you flick your high beams on and off twice. The transmitter sends a signal to the receiver in the garage, which opens the door. Cool!

Now mike that's not fair, of all the Harleys I've seen, I've never seen one where the seat didn't work. It held the driver perfectlyas he waited for a pick-up to come and get him.

Bad idea. Wrapping electronics in a plastic bag to keep water only keeps moisture in and causes corrosion.

The method of "motorcycle-proofing" electronics that I've used successfully is to go to Wal-mart, to their auto electronics section, and buy a can of cheap liquid electrical tape. Take the electronics apart, paint the stuff all over it, wait until it dries, then put it back together. It doesn't make it waterproof, but it makes it far more water-resistant and moisture-resistant than it was before.

I know that some electronic components get warm. Does covering them with the liquid tape cause any problems with the heat?

Nothing in a garage door opener is going to get warm enough to worry about. It will get warmer sitting out in the sun than it would from its own heating.
