    I just redid my gs750 electrics using an M unit.

    I thought it was hipster bait, but it made shit so easy.

    I went with the m unit basic, Bluetooth isnt with it to me.
    I also got their wire kit along with some bullet connectors from vintage connections. I also needed to buy a shoelace ferrule crimper.

    Revival cycles has some good informational youtube videos about it too

    I tend to agree, but wonder if I am missing something.

    Will be keeping the electric starter for sure though.

    Here's the wiring diagram I made.

    that's as much or more wires than stock!...why spend $200 some add bucks to do extra work?

    It's probably on par with stock. The benefit is that everything is on its own circuit and that block acts as a giant smart fuse. Yes, you could wire up a minimalist harness for way less, but this has enough features yo make it worth the cost.

    I'm guessing nobody has ever seen an internal wiring diagram for one of these sealed solid state gadgets so it's value is based on your satisfaction with the product.
    It sounds like the equivalent of replacing the old fashion fuse panel in your house with a solid state circuit breaker panel and how tidy that wiring is,
    well that depends on how tidy you can wire a circuit panel.

    I'll caveat that the wiring in the picture is after I tested the system but BEFORE I wrapped it.

    There really isn't a way to control the same junk with more or less wires.
    Circuits are what they are.

    I like the troubleshooting mode and the resettable relays.
    Yeah it is overkill for most guys.

    The Bluetooth one let's you configure the unit using an app, sends you a phone alert if the bikes alarm goes off, and can be set up as keyless start

    It's a 70s chopper. You guys are hilarious with the way you overcomplicate things on this site. Wake me up when choppers become an engineering marvel worthy of all these bells and whistles. Hold my beer while I remote start my chopper. You can literally run a simple harness through one, just one, 30 amp circuit breaker. Yes, technology is great, and I love these M Units, but on a chopper? Really?
