I was wondering if any one has put a flash2pass garage door opener on there S.W.?If so how did they wire it up?I would like to hook it up a separate switch[like above the starter switch with a switch of it own] if I could.
Any help would appreciated .I will post on the other site also.Thank you in advance.Roger

Hi Roger,

That's easy. You need to remove your windsheild first.

Then find the big connector that goes to your headlights.

Going into the big connctor you need to find the BLUE and GREEN wires.

Use the POSI Taps that come with Kit and tap the Positive wire of the sending units to the BLUE wire and the Negative wire on the sending unit to the GREEN wire on the headlight connector.

Go to the hardware store and buy some wide Velcrow strip with adhesive backing and paste the sending unit to the back of the scoots speedo unit.

Test the unit with the door.

Reinstall winsheild.

Your done....Easy! Flash2Pass Icon_cheers

Dennis thank you for your quick reply.I should elaborate a little.I have one installed one on my Burg.400[with flash to pass head light switch] and my Morphous[no flash to pass switch].I like the Burg jest squeeze the switch and the door opens.With the Morphous I have to flip the light switch back and forth twice for the door opens.What I would really would like to do is not put it on the lights at all.I would like to put a switch on the little blank spot above the starter switch.And place the opener on its own circuit. I have called the manufacturer on fri.but all the tech help had gone home for the weekend and I was told they would call me back when they had an answer.We'll see if I get any response at all.I don't think I'll hold my breath.

Sounds like you need to mount a waterproof, push button, momentary switch, and instead of the BLUE wire on the big connector, you need to tap your POS wire of the sender unit to your big WHITE headlight wire on the same connector. That way when you turn off your scooter off the sending unit will power down also.

Hook the grounding wire coming off the sending unit to any grounded screws at hand. The large fairing screws are good for that.

Glad I could Help Flash2Pass Icon_smile

Another possibility would be to use a switch that mounts on you brake resevoir ....

Flash2Pass 52-605s


http://www.scootworks.com/shop.cgi/page=partshonmirror.htm

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page the item is shown... they make one for the left and right hand side. A bit expensive at around 68 dollars.

Dennis thanks I'll give it a try.Two things I should point out Flash2Pass states it is a non-polarized unit and not to ground to frame.But hay I'll try almost anything.Thanks Scooterbob for the link,but I was thinking of keeping it in the right hand control unit. Will keep you posted.

Talking about switches on top of the brake reservoir reminded me that the Silverwing's master cylinder tops are the same as GL1200 and GL1500 and the 1800 Goldwing reservoirs. There are lots of accessories for those bikes such as switches and fancy lids. You can find lots of stuff online for GWs. Try Vencowings or Cycle Max for a couple sources.

scooterbob, Those are nice units but the switchs they use are just toggle ON/OFF switchs. In this application a momentary push botton switch would be called for.

The sending unit needs three things to work, Power, Ground, and a Switch.

Good Luck on your project.

Dennis I got it, thank you for the help.What I did was supply power to one wire and ground to the other,with a momentary switch in line with the ground.Works great!Again thanks a lot.

Hi Roger,

Glad to here you got it installed. If you get a chance can you take some pictures of your switch location so we can all see.

Thank You

Flash2Pass Icon_rolleyes Ahh,but I didn't say I got it installed,I said "I got IT! Flash2Pass Icon_razz
It was cutting in to my riding time.So after getting it to work the way I wanted I sat everything to the side and went for a ride to celebrate.
When I take the time to install the wiring and switch I will try to post Pic's{if I can get a friend to take the pic's.}I already have a switch I plan to put in the blank above the starter switch.I hope to pull a fused wire from the batt.to front for a lighter in the left glove-box and tap off that.
