Post Remote Trunk Release

The trunk is not actually for a car. It's for a bike. I have '01 CBR 929 and the back seat of the bike flips up like a trunk. It has a key release but since I made some mods to it, it doesn't work all that well. So I was thinking it would be sweet if I could do a remote release. Basically all I would need is a unit that would pull the lever and has a remote. I have never seen this or heard of it done. Anyone have any ideas?

Thumbs up

Sounds like a cool idea- just hop on internet and check out sites that sell the openers- some are very small- I use Ball's (don't think they have a web site but others sell their stuff) They are larger units but for doors you need something bigger- I have seen some that are about the size of a big magic marker. You also need to install the sending unit for the remote but Ball's is the size of a pack of smokes. Also think about a safety pull or some way to get in if the actuator ever goes bad. Good luck and keep it cool!

You should be able to pick up a gas hatch release solenoid from the wrecking yard for cheap.
