So, completed a few more mods on the 919...

Garage door opener.
Soldered in a couple of wires to the remote. Squeezed the remote into the headlight bucket, and ran the wires through the factory wire sheathing going to the right switch. Drilled a hole, installed microswitch.



Buell M2 windscreen.
...almost required isn't it?
Ebay - $20.50
prepped, painted, buffed, intalled.



GPS mount.
Didn't really do anything but bolt the purchased mount on.



Helmet lock.
OK, this one I'm pretty pleased with myself on!
If anyone is interested, I can post a walk through (and pics) of how I made it.

Love that garage door opener. Way better thand fumbling around my pocket looking for the button.

Did you take apart a normal opener and wire into it or did you get something else made for this type of aplication?

My garage door opener came with two remotes. They were about the size of a car door/alarm remote.

I never had a use for remote #2 until now.

I popped it open, soldered in two wires across the contact points, snapped it back together with silocone on all the seams.

It's running on it's own battery, not the bikes.

Great mods. That helmet lock is genius. Looks like you can still use as a foot peg. You ought to patent that idea.

No.
That thought didn't even occur to me until I was all finished, stood back to look at it and said to myself: "Huh, I could've made that helmet lock a functional foot peg with a little more work!"

Curse of diving in and creating as you go.


Ah well. Maybe on version 2.0

Nice idea with the garage door opener! +2

Buell windscreen. -1. It's just better completely naked IMO.

But hey, you came out ahead!

Is that the RAM stem mount you are using for the GPS mount?

You've done some great work there, you should be proud.

I just ordered one, I believe he is using the RAM Stem mount system. If you go to Garmin GPS, XM, Sirius, Magellan GPS, Lowrance GPS, TomTom GPS, MIO GPS & RAM GPS Mount Authorized Dealer at MountGuys.com you can enter your GPS brand and it will put together the correct GPS holder to the style of mount you want. Here is what I got in the 1.75 inch style. https://www.mountguys.com/ProductDet...AM-B-236-GA34U

Really nice work.

Looks like you might want to go ahead and flush your brake fluid - in fact, you're probably not alone, supposed to do that every 2 years I believe.

There are a lot of "NOS" motorcycles being sold that should of had the brake fluid replaced (flushed) before they left the dealerships......

Mine came with the original brackets. It was listed as a '97 M2 Cyclone windscreen.
I did elongate the mounting holes on the brackets to shift the screen forward a bit.

More updates

I haven't posted an update in quite awhile, so I figured I'd snap some pics of some more mods.

Changed out the bars for some Renthals.
ASV shorty levers.




Original GPS died, so I bought a new mount for the iPhone and a GPS app.
Gear indicator (don't start with me, I like seeing what gear I'm in!)



Pvsters old Two brothers exhaust, shined up.




Givi crash bars.
Also originally off Pv's bike.
All fixed up.


And the only reason I swapped to the two brothers exhaust, the dummy muffler/storage compartment.
I needed the room for the cruise control modulator.



The cruise is nice for the long straight stretches, and for shaking out the hands.
It is an Audiovox CCS100 kit, that I don't think is being made anymore. I bought it for a previous bike, but couldn't come up with a concealed mounting spot.

The modulator fit in the storage compartment like it was supposed to be there! About 1/32" clearance all around while fitting through the opening.

Drilled a hole on the backside of the dummy pipe to feed the wires, vacuum feed, and actuator cable through.

Man, you're the master of tidy, cool mods. While the cruise control is both complex and innovative, especially the location, I love that garage door opener switch - it looks completely factory!

Well done.

I love that garage door button, Im going to have to do that myself now. Have always liked the ASV shorties and the dummy muffler is also genius, does the endcap atch or just push in? Also those givi bars are looking much better than when I last saw them.

It has a twist lock with a key that kinda looks like a freezer lock key.
I didn't make the dummy muffler it was part of the Two Brothers kit. Single pipe conversion, with a matching fake pipe/storage compartment.

Built up the scratched area with the mig, filed it round, paint.
Thanks again for the deal on those.
I was amazed that nothing was bent with the amount/depth of the scratches!

Where did you find the gear indicator? Thought about one of those for mine but didn't know where to start looking. Can you choose the color?

Those of you who think you know everything are annoying to those of us who do!

Sorry to revive OLD threads, I was looking for the garage door opener mod and found this thread which has some really cool links -- still looking for a pics of the garage door mod and exactly how to fuse/solder the opener....I probably could figure it out through trial and error..but I'd rather not destroy an opener.

NM.....I see now the flash2pass system -- thinking about that instead of hiding a wired remote control and setting up a separate micro button on the handlebars somewhere.

Like the idea of using the highbeam switch to make the door opener engage.

There's still some other intersting mods here.

I have the flash2pass system on my Hornet, it works great. The only issue I have come across is that sometimes if you press the wall button too fast and too many times while it is opening or closing is it kind of freezes up and then you have to disconnect it from power and let it reset (on the wall). Once I get around to it I am going to be a second and third module (for my truck and Hawk). If I had other family members around I'd probably be getting upset messages from a wife who could not open the garage door but I am single so I am not worried and just make sure to press the button and let it finish opening or closing before pressing it again (In case I forgot something in the truck or whatever).

Also, You could probably wire it in such a way that you can use your original wall unit and remotes, as well as the flash2 pass, depending on what your needs are.
