How to install a Garage Door Opener on your ZX-10R (pics)
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.
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:
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.
Now I dont have to fumble around trying to find the button through my jacket.
