But that is for an F800! Have to try that next time coming home. Not sure that'll work on a K1200 or K1600

Re: check out this new garage opener!

this worked for me today. The garage opener even moved the car over so I could get in.

I dare say the gentleman on the bike said "hooter switch" at one point when referring to the horn button!

Re: check out this new garage opener!

I tried to get mine to work like that but it must be broken. I wound up in the hospital with a concussion. Maybe the European models work better .

I can Guarantee you that the "Eastern Models" DO NOT work better.

I have one and they are very stylish, beautiful, smokin in fact and for some strange reason my model is mostly low maintenance but this feature is missing from my model for sure.

I would not trade mine for anything.
