    I installed a remote onto my bike,

    I opened a spare remote I had, took the battery out, took off the push button and soldered wire in its place, this wire goes to a small switch on my handelbars, I soldered wire to the battery terminals, this goes to the bike battery with a 5 amp inline fuse ( I still think that 5 amp fuse is to big), it work perfectly, I find that I can now open and close the gate from further away than the standard remote does.

    No words of wisdom, no thought of the day, no nothing.

    Got petrol (in jerry cans) will travel, but not to far.

    Thumbs up Success !!

    Ok so this is what I have done. I soldered the switch on the remote and connected two wires to the battery terminals. Drilled a little hole in the casing of the remote to let the wire through. Then I connected the wires to the right indicator. The remote fits nicely into the front light casing.

    Now all I do is switch the right indicator on and off immediately to activate the gate. I take a left turn into my yard so the flashing of the left indicator wont make the gate "deurmekaar".

    Thanks again for all the input.

    Man I'm loving this new toy

    Well done dude
    When in doubt, Gas It! It may not solve the problem, but it WILL end the suspense!
