Has any one hard wired a garage door opener onto their bikes? I am a lazy bastard and hate turning my bike off, getting offf of it and removing the passenger seat each time I get home. :rant I am thinking of wiring it to a toggle or push button switch below the turn signal switch.

I wonder if I can get a starter button from yamaha to use??

That is a waste of money and if you have one of the rolling code garage opener, you will have to purchase the $25 universal receiver to convert your universal garage opener back to a fix code (less secure).

Use LudicrouSpeeD idea and add two relays (cost $10 at RadioShack) to build your own AND gate. Use the new AND gate to trigger your existing garage opener remote. In fact, I will doing this on my bike and I will post how I do it when I am done. I am thinking of using maybe using Neutral and High Beam to trigger the garage opener. The bike has to be in Neutral before flashing the high beam to trigger the garage opener. Hopefully, I will get sometime to work on it this weekend.

that seems like a logical and simple solution but I would like to see all of these ideas above come to fruition.

don't get me wrong, I would love to see these come to fruition! I was just saying that I cary mine in the pocket, not the seat, so that I don't have to get off the bike. I don't even have to get in my pocket, just hit the button throught it.

As for the above ideas...I would love to see them, if for just the "COOL" factor! :)

Here is a diagram of using to Relays to create an AND gate.



Here is a picture of the actual relays connected to a garage door transmitter.



I tested this and it works. You don't have to use the neutral and high beam wire. You can use any combination of wire that are Positive (+) to trigger the two red connections.

I am actually going to install an alarm onto my bike and have the "Optional" output off the alarm to trigger the garage door transmitter. This way, I don't have to find and tap into the neutral and high beam wires.

Hope this help with you project.
