I so want to do that... but damn... the wiring on the dog is sooooo difficult to deal with...

Maybe when I ditch the front blinkers I can hook it up there instead...

I only had to peel off some tape to get access to the high beam wire . but my bike is cheaply built so its easy to get at the wires. you probably have some chunky wiring harness

Yeah... that would be helpful..

I'm thinking, if i go with a new GSXR and a PC, the mode switches will be useless, soooooo i have 2 switches to play with... and 2 garage doors...
Should work out well
