Mine does the same thing. I'm guessing that with all four filaments lit, it's the increased line loss that screws the F2P.

Don't know if it will help, but have you thought about installing the Easter Beaver Headlight Relay Kit? That way you won't have alot of current going trough the F2P switch, and the garage door opener will be the main load on the circuit (instead of the lights). Heres a link.

Hope this helps

yes i was thinking about thatr AFTER I ordered my PC8 and after it had shipped. I did not know what that would buy me at the time. I have put that on a future list of things to get.


Thanks

Smile Glad I bought Flash2Pass

I just installed flash2pass on my 2011 DL650ABS. I attached it to the right headlight. Works perfectly. Receiver took 15 minutes, transmitter took 30 minutes.

I almost didn't buy it because I read about all the problems getting it to work. Glad I went ahead and bought it.

Has anyone resolved the "does not work when plugged up to bulb" issue?

Testing it all the way through the install, it works fine until the lamp socket is attached to the lamp. Unplug it, it works fine. It does not work plugged up even with the engine running.

FYI, I used the left side light.

I just ordered this for the new bike. From what I read on here, should I install it on the right light, or order the relay kit? Any new info would be great!

Garage
Install a headlight relay kit for a little more light and and longer lasting contacts and connectors.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

After the install, I found out it works fine, and every time, as long as the motor is running. I guess it needs to be sure we're really going for a ride before it bothers to open the door.

A couple of interesting notes:

1) In really hot weather the range can go down to almost nonfunctional. Moving the F2P button to the front of the garage keeps it working. I kept the old button in back of the garage hooked up too.

2) A new battery increased the range in all temps - by about 40 feet - compared to my 6 year old battery.
