mo.Unit Introduction & Feature Overview

The mo.Unit:

The mo.Unit has revolutionized vintage motorcycle restoration/repair and there is absolutely nothing available on the market better at doing what it does.

To describe the mo.Unit as fuse block replacement is an oversimplification, it is a solid-state power distribution module, digital micro-controller for the vehicle. If you have previous experience with motorcycle electrical wiring this module is a paradigm shift away from everything you know of OEM electrical systems.  For example; if an OEM switch can be likened to a light switch that completes a circuit when closed a button or switch connected to an mo.Unit would be like a key on a keyboard that sends a signal to the computer that interprets that signal and activates the corresponding function. When pressed, the switches complete a ground that is interpreted by the mo.Unit which activates the appropriate accessory. 

There are two versions of the mo.Unit, the mo.Unit Blue which incorporates Bluetooth functionality to provide a number of convenient features, alternatively the mo.Unit Basic provides all of the core functions without all of the wireless Bluetooth capability. 

Here is a link to the m-Unit Blue and Basic manual and another to the discontinued m-Unit V.2. Indispensable when combined with CTRL+F for searching out specific questions.
