It seems to me that a built in garage door transmitter would be pretty handy. I have always just clipped mine on the shield over the gages on my 1100. Would be a nice function on my 1800.

It's not strictly a HD thing you can buy the same system from ebay . I have it on my bike and car. Just flash the high beams twice and the door opens or closes. works great!!

I added two switches to my wing today.The red one is for the garage door opener and the black is for a CB that I plan on adding to the bike.Here is the link to the pictures of the finished product. It was more time consuming than anything.

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. :cool:

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?
