Garage Door Opener Mod

Decided to install a garage door opener on the 796 tonight. It was very easy and cheap. I have never posted a mod with pics before so bare with me lol

1. Remove left or right side tank fairing ( I chose right side )
2. Install push button where bottom screw hole goes. ( Had to use socket to hold the nut down as I threaded the push button tight with vice grips )
3. Soldered 20 gage wires to ends of push button
4. Took apart spare garage door opener and drilled hole in back half of case to run wires through.
5. Find the button that opens/closes door and flip over to circuit board side to find spots the button was soldered on.
6. Run wires through case and solder wires from the push button to circuit board where button is.

Test push button before moving on.

Cont...

7. Close the case and mount with double sided tape inside of fairing and close to the push button. That's about the only place you can fit it.
8. Wrap wires with electrical tape and push button ( optional but cleans it up)
9. Remove clip-on nutplate from holes where push button goes for clearance.
10. Reinstall fairing

It's not as fancy as flashing your lights to open garage but its easy n cheap. Plus you don't actually modify anything on the bike structural or electrical.

Hope you guys like, I think it looks great and functional

Excellent DIY.

I need to check in and see if I can get a tiny little replacement like that for my 20 year old garage opener. Every now and then my opener acts up a bit and won't get up off the couch.

Great idea. The only change that I would make is to use the 3M grey double sided tape. It works better with plastics.

2010 696 ProTune Powermap programmer, EvoTech tail, Quat D Alum slip ons, Artrax wavy rotors, K&N, 14T, bar risers, G2 Throttle Tamer. Still working on swapping all of the black plastic over to carbon fiber. Oh, and no more ugly charcoal canister!

Thanks, yeah the grey is better but once fairing is installed its sandwiched against the tank and when you need to change batteries down the road it's easier to pop off.
