Has anyone installed a F2P (Flash to Pass garage door opener) on the TV?

I have a F2P that has been on 3 bikes so far: 2009 Triumph Speed Triple, 2013 KTM 690 Duke, 2015 Triumph Tiger 800 XRx. Now I want to install it on my Lusso. The F2P activates a garage door opener transmitter mounted on the bike with a double flash of the high (main) headlight beam. My hands never need to leave the controls.

I also installed a transmitter on my Camry. Living in an apartment, it's easy to just add the receiver and when I move out, take it with me.

The Speed Triple and 690 Duke were easy, and when I traded the Duke for the Tiger, I just had the dealer do the remove and install.

I just need to access the wires for the headlight, the common and the high beam, and find a place to put the transmitter box (60mm X 35mm X 15mm) and I'm hoping someone has already done this.

There doesn't seem to be a Haynes shop manual available yet, indeed Haynes doesn't seem to have any manuals for MV.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum mate.
Sorry, can't help you with your project either, and no, Haynes has never made MV manuals. Try ordering one from your dealer or Star Twin Trading maybe.

I wouldn't try to mess with italian circuitry

Simple solutions exist using the built-in electronics



Might be implemented on a TV.

The workshop manual covering this device is alas prohibitively expensive and very hard to get.

Could be unforeseen consequences

Arcimboldo: My neighbors might fuss after a week or two of me returning home from work at 10:30 PM and honking the horn. With many of my fellow Arizonans armed, it could become very noisy indeed.

I'll ask the dealer to install it at the 600 mile service; that's probably safest.

Thanks everyone!

You don't get this 88 tankbag in AZ?



Sort of topheavy
but keeps noisy neighbors cowering just pat.

Elenctic method it's called.

Philosophical shorthand for "never mess with italian wiring"
Or with Lucas electrics

F2P installed.

I asked an MV dealer (not the selling dealer) to install the F2P and the mechanic said "this bike has LED headlights" which I knew, and "the F2P can't be installed on this or any bike with LED headlights."

Ummm...OK said I, reasoning that if a mechanic tells me it can't be done, either it really can't or he doesn't want to do it. Either way, I wouldn't insist.

I couldn't see a way to get to the back of the headlight, so Plan B, get a waterproof momentary switch from a boat dealer, (horn button) and use an old fused battery connection for heated gear for power to the switch and put the F2P in the right side "glove" box, mounting the switch through the lid. Works a treat.

Since the only gloves that could possibly fit in these 2 glove boxes are primarily sold to health care professionals, I plan to get a box and put a (few?) pair in the left side glove box for chain lubing on overnight trips.
