Seeing as I had the front off the bike to do a 12VDC power socket (waiting on a cable from EB in Japan) I thought I'd install my garage door opener as I'd done on my previous bikes.
After searching for a nook to hide the circuit board I gave up, even the Vespa had more spare room than this beast. I had to find somewhere accessible as I didn't want to remove the fairing every time the battery needed changing. I ended up putting the board in a remote control case and fitting it to the space under the pillion seat and running the wire under the tank to the left side dash.
The actuator button was an IP67 rated momentary push button that I mounted in the blank next to the pop-out for the fog light switch. The battery can be changed in a matter of minutes by removing the seats, sliding the cover of the box and swapping the battery.
Now I'm just waiting for the Eastern Beaver delivery (Monday I hope) so I can get it all back together and RIDE.
Some pics to keep you all happy.
The switch all wired up.
