Garage Door Opener

What garage door opener that you can attach permanently to the bike and operate with one of your switches is the best and easiest to install?

Understand it's not what you asked for, but I prefer to have the opener safety in my pocket. It goes where I go, regardless of which bike I happen to ride. I paid $28 for this back a couple of years ago. Now it's $35.

I had one like that, and dropped it on the pavement on my way out and found it later after it had been run over by a car, so I think I'd like one that is attached to the bike.

Integrates with certain products like neutrino black box too.

They don't have an "OEM" solution for the BMW but the HD solution should work just fine. I was pondering how to install when I decided to drill a hole and maybe gluing the switch in place was likely the best scenario for that.

The Indian install switch would alleviate the need for glue. There are lots of options for switches.

Well, mine worked flawless until a drunk drove it over 7 years worth of working on a 13GTL.

people SUCK!


Yeah I think it worked but in some cases the modulation of the headlight signal confused the door opener. Well that's what I seem to remember. I know there was a fix for it. I was going to pick one up and then they were almost impossible to find. Looks like they have been relaunched. Now I just have my existing garage remote velcroed to one of my cubbies
