I haven't seen that kind.

I had a Genie garage door opener that included a control that could be wired into the "Flash-to-Pass" switch on a car; I assume that would work on my 650 as well, but I don't have a garage anymore (it's been converted into my brother's and sister-in-law's apartment now. :cry: )

My garage remote is an older one, and it has a clip on the side. The clip was probably intended for clipping it to a sun visor, but it works well as a belt clip. So I just clip it to my belt (jacket or jeans) when riding.

I just went to Lowe's and bought a small transmitter that seconds as a key chain for around $25.00. Works great and hangs from the ignition on the key.

Yeah, that's apparently how this one works. It's cool -- but probably beyond my install expertise. :(

Thanks for the tip. I think I might just get one of these as well:

I took my regular Genie remote and put it in the top of the glove box with some double-sided mounting pads (upside down).

If the motofx control is anything like my Genie, it's a breeze to install. Cut one highbeam lead, insert the control's wires into the break (didn't matter what polarity), twist wires and cover with electricians' tape, done.

I just put mine in the left upper glove box on my 650 and there it has stayed :) . It never seems to move and when I want to open or close the garage I just put my hand in and push the button.

Mine os a 1974 vintage Sears :wink: so it may be a bit bigger than newer ones. It used to have a clip, but my one and only attempt to connect it to a sun visor broke it off.

When my Bike Barn arrives (http://www.thebikebarn.net), and is assembled, I'll put it back in the car in the hopes that we someday get the garage cleared out enough to put the car in. :lol:
