I have a motogadget M-unit sitting in front of me going to install on a 74 commando. The instructions have already given me a headache. Is there any feedback on these units, good, bad, or suggestions, tips. Thanks, dave

Didn't even know what that was without googling, but the 1st thing to ask is
Is it +ve earth. ?

This is the first hurdle with brit bikes and modern leccy bits....

We'd be interested to hear about it, when you get it under control.
Since you already have it - so its too late to back away !

When I did google it, a lot of stuff did come up before any said what it actually was.....
If its "protected against reverse polarity" we thunk you may be in trouble ?

You are going to have to completely rewire your bike to incorporate it into the electrics. (?)
And, it sounds way too sophisticated for a Commando, they run on mice and carrier pigeons in the electric dept ?!?

A few members of the accessnorton forum have fitted them, so you will probably get help there if you ask.

Rohan, it is negative ground system, this is no problem because the standard wiring system is gone. However I am concerned about errant signals affecting the tympanium or the Boyer, had this happen before on british bikes and BMWs. Personally I would rather just have a simplified stock system, but thats just me. People are wanting this new tech for whatever reason. thanks dave
