I am hearing that there is a way to set your garage door to open with you headlights. Does anyone know if this is real, how to do it????

I purchased an extra trip odometer switch and soldered wires to an extra garage door opener. Do a search and you will find a lot of people who have done on here. Cost of parts less than $10 (plus an extra garage remote)

the opener is mounted in my tour-pak and the switch is mounted in-between my speedo and tach. I always find it funny when I see someone at the dealer pressing it to see my odometer reading and nothing happens:grin:

What you are hearing is that the garage door opener is installed under the fairing and is wired into the headlights for power. So when you hit your bright/dim switch it activates the garage door opener. This is the way the HD one works but you can also wire your own opener in this way or use the push button switch that others have mentioned.

I mounted the garage door opener in the Speedo/Tach cluster and put a trip meter switch in there like others have suggested.

Here's a photo of how it looks when finished.



Power for the unit comes from the bike and the new trip meter switch activates the normal push button as before. It's been there now for about 2 years with no problems.

I got the HD opener. The non HD is called Flash2pass. It is a great mod. Just funny when adjusting headlight alignment & you keep opening & closing the garage door.

I got it from Harley. there's two parts to it. It's the switch and the switch cover. I don't remember the part numbers, but I'll see if I can find my paperwork on it when I get home. Should be easy enough to find though, I just asked at the parts counter.

I just mounted an extra opener under the lefthand cubby lid, attached to the hinge. Takes about two second to flip the lid and hit the switch going up the driveway.

With all the new vehicles with built in HomeLink or other remote access systems, almost everybody has extra openers now.
