First, you have to open up the garage door opener (gdo) and find the switch. Solder on a wire on each side of the switch and close up the gdo body. I cut the plastic away a bit to allow the wires to go through the body easier. (there are no pics for this since I figure this part depends on what gdo you have) Next, locate where you want the gdo. I put mine under the seat. http://www.zx-10r.net/images/prht/gdo/GDO01.jpg Now, run the wire through the frame and fairing to wherever you want the switch. I used thin speaker wire (cant remember the exact guage) because it's easy to route and is not very heavy: http://www.zx-10r.net/images/prht/gdo/GDO02.jpg http://www.zx-10r.net/images/prht/gdo/GDO03.jpg http://www.zx-10r.net/images/prht/gdo/GDO04.jpg Next is the switch. I didnt want to hack into my controls, so I made a bracket out of mild steel, drilled and painted it and mounted the switch from Radio Shack (p/n 275-644) on it to complete the install. http://www.zx-10r.net/images/prht/gdo/GDO05.jpg http://www.zx-10r.net/images/prht/gdo/GDO06.jpg Now I dont have to fumble around trying to find the button through my jacket.
