    I've already bought one of those momentary waterproof push buttons that Honda uses to reset the trip mileages and scroll through trip A/Trip B/and continuous odometer modes. I am planning on mounting it and the opener into my fairing when I get around to installing it.

    No , not jumping off of it, adding one in addition to the same area, but connected to my garage remote, ranging it to look own, so I'm getting another out those switches to mount there.

    Yup, but I'm putting mine just opposite of the original one, so it looks factory.

    Excellent, I like the idea. Be sure to post some pics. Also, try to avoid using speaker wire or the silly side-by-side low voltage stuff. Spend the money on a nice two-conductor wire that'll have the two individual wires you'll need within a single, round cable. I'll see if I can find a suitable source for you...

    You can use any appropriate conductor, nothing special about the wire your showing him... I ran some stuff on my bike and used #12 THHN... As long as it can carry the current and amperage you need then it's fine.

    Yeah, any suitable conductor will work, I like using the stuff I posted a pic of because the shielding subdues much unwanted interference with my stereo and, an added bonus, the two wires within the single, black, round cable blends in seamlessly with factory wiring, and can be run through fairings and the like using readily available through-wall grommets. Using these items, the installation can be done in such a way that it looks factory, no one notices the one black wire...Quite the opposite if one uses speaker wire, side-by-side wires, or two individual wires routed alongside each other, these installs are easily noticed.

    I wasn't discounting your chosen product, I just don't want people to think that's all they can use. I agree, it would make for a clean look. It also depends on you project though, you can bring power wherever you want with just one wire and ground locally to the project site... I realize though that this doesn't necessarily mean anything for the project being discussed in this thread....

    I do mostly Commercial and Industrial work, although I am spooling down. Not taking any more new construction projects, mostly support for my existing customers. NOT trying to make you feel bad or anything but I'm retiring as of May 1, 2017. Am closing the business and selling off the equipment, then start traveling. Lots of this country we have not seen and it's about time.
