Not being a smart azz but link to the Flash to Pass? Do I hide the remote on bike or does it have a linked device to send signal to open the door. I do not want to carry and lose a remote on my riding gear. If I could just activate and EXISTING switch or control on bike to opend door I would be good. Do not want to add switches as that gets messy and run out of real estate on bars.f

Yeah after seeing the price of the Flash to Pass aftermarket spare opener is the trick.

I installed a small button on the "battery door", hooked up a small wired to the remote transmitter, and put it all inside the battery compartment. Works like a charm - and the button looks very discrete

$100.

The super fancy latest state of the art 3-button transmitter I use was $20 on Amazon last week. A 12V relay, a couple resistors, a diode, and a capacitor connected to one's high beams can momentarily depress a button of one's choice. But this would require a high school graduate level of understanding electricity and the ability to solder.

Or at least the level of understanding a high school graduate should have.

All to avoid having to keep the transmitter in jacket pocket. Heck, all to save spending $20 each to put one in every jacket. Could have 5 for the price of one FlashToOpen.com. But to each his own.

Seems easy enough to do. Researching what is in the double tap logic used. Some sort of latching relay or "stock off the shelf" PCB logic board. Not because I have to but because I can.

A 70 year old, like myself, old beyond his years, can circumvent all the good planning in the world.

First I put the GDO in my tank bag, what a pain that was, unzipping the tank bag while trying to keep the FJR upright on the wet {sometimes} grass in front of the garage.

Then, I put it in my jacket pocket, which jacket I could never remember, and always the jacket I wasn't wearing.

FINALLY, some good samaritan solved all my problems and told me to velcro it inside the rear of the "glove box", open the "glove box" while riding up the driveway, push the button, and ride right into the garage. SWEEET!!

I left the spare in the tank bag, just in case.

IT'S BEEN A YEAR AND I HAVE YET TO USE THE GDO IN THE "GLOVE BOX"!!!! SIGH

{the only time I remember it's even in there is when one of these posts appear on the forum}

So, to tie this silly post in with the thread, I probably would "forget" to flash the high beams anyway.
