I got tired of fumbling with the garage door opener leaving and going on the bike. So, I decided to just buy an extra one off eBay for $10 and mount it on the bike. If you can solder, this is a pretty dang easy thing to do.

As far as where to put the actual opener, I went with under the seat attached with velcro. As for the $3 radio shack SPST momentary switch, I wanted it to be completely out of the way. I know there are all sorts of ways to do this. I've heard of attaching it to the high beam lights and the bike battery. I just went with the simple approach.

Just solder two wires to the remote's native switch. In my case, I have 3 to choose from.

Nice little hole.

Attached a molex connector so I can easily remove or swap out remotes.

Tidy up with heat shrink.

Well hidden and accessible under the seat.

Switch is at the top right of the gas tank.

I bought a mini remote for when I ride but never thought of the switch and mounting idea. Ingenious!!

The only somewhat hard part is finding a place to mount the switch. You want to make sure you have clearance behind any plastics, and in my case it was difficult to tell. Also might want to to keep in the back of your mind heat,water, etc.

True, I need to find a spot suitable for a small switch panel for this and a couple other electrical mods.
I compliment you on the profesional job you did.
