Garage door opener install
I decided, since I am keeping this bike, to add the garage door opener to my list of "farkles". I know a lot of folks will just hook up their garage door opener to the high beam circuit, and there is nothing wrong with that, but I wanted something a little more robust.
When I had my K1200S, I added an Autoswitch controller. Basically its a programmable unit, that activates your garage door opener. What I like about this unit is that I can program it so that I have to hit the flash to pass, twice to activate the garage door opener. I know, big deal.
Anyhow, the hardest part of the install was getting access to the high beam circuit itself. Soldering the wires onto the remote control was easy and fun. Getting enough space to work on the high beam circuit...not so much.
Anyhow, I think that is the end of my mods.........famous last words, but for now I think I am good.
