The device is completely moulded and resistant against water, heat, cold and vibrations. Microprocessor operated and supervised circuits guaranty highest reliability. Current flow of each circuit
is measured with high accuracy. In case of a failure like a short-circuit or overload the concerning
loop will be shut down in a split second. All switching activities are carried out by state of the art
semiconductor switches in a fast, wear-free and almost lossless way.
Therefore no other components like relays, boxes, fuses are necessary. A complete new wiring
harness can be made with minimal time; materials and effort compared to conventional solutions
only a fraction of space and cables is needed. State of the art technology like pulse width
modulation afford new possibilities like connecting rear and brake light together with only one
cable.
The current status of each circuit is shown by an internal LED at the m-unit's topside :
LED off
- input not active, output not powered
LED on
- input active, output powered – normal condition
short flashing
- output shutdown due short circuit or overload
one short flash each 2s
(only at „lock“)
- alarm system active
Turn Signals
Automatic shut-off can be adjust in setup menu. If this feature is activated a countdown will start
once the signal is flashing. If the adjusted countdown has ended the turn signal stop flashing. The
countdown will stop and set back if the brake is activated. Once the brake is released the
countdown start again with full time length. If a turn signal switch is used and signals has been
automatically shutting down, the switch has to set back to centre prior set the turn signal switch
again to left or right. If two turn signal push button are used is additionally the lane change mode
available. If the button is pressed very shortly the signals will flash only 3 times.
Hazard light
For starting the hazard light hold the push buttons for left and right turn signal for 2 seconds. If a
turn light switch is used, the hazard light function can only be activated if a additional hazard light
switch is activating both turn light inputs at the same time. The hazard light mode will stay active
even if the main (ignition) switch is deactivated.
Light control
In order to save the vehicles battery power the head light is always switched off after key lock is
switched on. The head light will be activated automatically after pressing the start button or (for kick
start) after one short light switch operation.
If a push buttons is used for high/low beam control, a short push will toggle between high and low
beam. Hold the button for 2s will switch off light completely. Press the button again will switch low
beam on again. If a switch is used for light control it is only possible to toggle between high and low
beam once the light is activated.
The m-units light circuits are suitable for standard H4 55/60W Halogen bulbs. The output
connections for the lights (Light Hi Out/ Light Low Out) can withstand switched power of up to
120W. It is not possible to connect bulbs with higher power output.
The headlamp flasher feature is activated by a short tap to the push-button.
THE PARKING LIGHT FEATURE IS ACTIVATED IF HIGH BEAM IS ACTIVATED WHILE
SWITCHING OFF THE MAIN (IGNITION) SWITCH. THE PARKING LIGHT FEATURE IS
REALIZED BY THE EXISTING LOW BEAM AND REAR LIGHT ILLUMINANT. THERE IS NO
ADDITIONAL PARKING LIGHT LAMP NECESSARY. PARKING LIGHT SHOULD NO LONGER
ACTIVATED THAN 2 HOURS TO PREVENT DRAINING THE BATTERY. THEREFORE A
ACTIVATED PARKING LIGHT WILL BE INDICATED BY TWO SHORT HONKS.

Kill switch
The running engine can be stopped in three different ways:
a) engine start button double click
Pressing the button again after engine stop will crank and start the engine in normal way.
b) Connecting a separate kill switch or push button at the "config" terminal. If a push button is used
the engine is stopped if push button is shortly pressed. To release the kill function hold the button
again for 2 seconds or switch ignition lock off and on again. If a kill switch is used wait for 2
seconds between switching engine off and release the kill switch.
c) When implementing controls with four push-buttons, the engine is killed by pressing the buttons
for light and right turn indicator at the same simultaneously.
Alarm system
The sensitivity of the alarm system is independent of its positioning and orientation. If activated, the
alarm system will flash all turn indicators when the main switch is deactivated. The vehicle’s
relative position and orientation will be recorded and stored and the alarm system engaged. The
alarm is triggered when the orientation of the vehicle is changed on it’s X, Y or Z axis (e. g. when
the vehicle is raised from it’s kickstand). Depending on the preset sensitivity, the alarm will also be
triggered in case of lighter shocks or agitation resp. Depending on the chosen setup, the alarm
system will trigger a pre-alarm and will only activate the alarm when the system is triggered again
in a ten-second time frame.
If the vehicle is transported (e. g. by ferry, trailer or tow-truck) the alarm system can be deactivated
non-recurring by pressing the horn button while switching disengaging the main switch.
If implemented within cars or sidecars, we recommend the highest sensitivity setting (option F).
6 Mechanical Installation
Mount the device on a flat surface (metal base plate) free of tension using two M5 screws.
No push or pull force should act to the device. Area of Installation must be protected from
spray water and 30cm away from hot engine or exhaust parts. Maximum ambient temperature
must not exceed +80°C or go below -20°C.
All warranties and extended warranties will be deemed forfeit in case of mechanical damage to the
device.
The m-Unit is connected to vehicle ground by the two mounting screws. Therefore one of
the mounting screws must connected directly to battery minus terminal. The necessary
cable cross section for this connection cable is 1.5mm².

7 Electrical Connection
7.1 General
The device is working in a voltage range between 4 to 25V direct current. Use in vehicles without
battery is not possible.
Make sure that the vehicle is equipped with interference suppressed spark plugs or ignition
cables. The minimum distance between ignition coil or high tension cables and m-Unit must
not be below 30 cm.
7.2 Safety Functions
Currents in the range from 18-40V (e. g. in case of defective controller) will trigger the
activation of the horn. This prevents unnoticed battery cook-off and damage to appliances
due to continued driving.
Loose cables can release currents from 40-80V. In this range, the m-unit activates all
appliances to protect itself. However, the resulting protection is only short term and
prolonged (several seconds) or repeated currents surges will burn out the connected
appliances (e. g. high or low beam light bulbs). When the current surge can no longer be
compensated, burn out occurs and the respective output will become damaged
permanently. Such damage is indicated by the defective/dysfunctional high or low beam
outlet. In this case, all warranty claims will become forfeit.
Reverse polarity of the battery will cause the activation of all connected appliances to
protect the m-unit.
PLEASE ENSURE TIGHT BATTERY CABLE CONNECTIONS. WHILE THE ENGINE IS
RUNNING, LOOSE CONTACTS CAN CREATE STRONG CURRENT SURGES ABLE TO
DAMAGE APPLIANCES AND M-UNIT BEYOND REPAIR.
7.3 Fuses
While the m-unit itself does not need a fuse, the implementation of a vehicle main fuse is
mandatory since the voltage regulator (connected to the battery via the main fuse) might
malfunction and create a short circuit.
If cables with a lesser diameter than indicated in Chapter 7.4 are connected (e. g.
motogadget instruments or the m-lock), they have to be protected by the included fusible
links.
7.4 Cable Routing Recommendations
Cables used in vehicles must be suitable for this application. We recommend our cable kit (order #
4002031). Cable insulation must have a adequate thickness and insulation material must have a
resistance against fuel, oil, cold and heat. Please use only cables which are certified for use in
vehicles. Not fused wires which lead from battery positive terminal to starter motor or to m-Unit
must have the shortest length possible. It is very important to protect the insulation of these cables
against damage by wearing. At contact points between cable and vehicle parts additional insulation
protection is necessary. Before routing cables look for suitable cable paths. The cables should be
as far away as possible from hot parts of the engine. Look for a suitable place for the respective
cables to meet with their plugs and for the plugs to be connected with one another. This is usually
in the headlight housing, somewhere below the gas tank or in the cockpit. Make sure you take note
of the required lengths of cables before cutting them for best fit. It is important here to consider the
full lock of the handlebars as well as the front and rear wheel travel. All cables should be routed
free of kinks and should not be subject to any tension.
6
In addition, the cables have to be properly isolated, especially in places where mechanical wear
can take place. We recommend solder joints. For fastening the cables we recommend cable ties of
synthetic material.
To prevent corrosion from the m-unit terminals you must apply terminal grease to the
screws and into the cable inlets.
For preparing a cable for connection to a m-unit terminal; remove 15mm of cable insulation and
crimp a cable end sleeve over the free cable end. Cut sleeve with inserted cable to approx. 6mm,
put it into the dedicated cable inlet and tighten the terminal screw.
7.5 Wire Cross Sections
Wire diameters used in a circuit are dependant on the current flow that particular circuit. Following
plan shows the minimum wire cross sections used in the single circuits of m-Unit. The installed wire
cross sections must not go below the shown values.
7.6 Connecting Battery’s Positive Terminal
Cable connection has to be carried out as shown in
the drawing at the right side.
The minimum wire cross section must no go below
10mm².
The cable end has to be supplied with an eyelet and
will be mounted with a M5 screw to the m-Unit.
The maximum torque applied to the M5 fastening
screws must not exceed 4 Nm. Screw adhesive
medium strength must be applied to the screw prior
installation.
MAKE SURE THE EYELET IS INSULATED IN A
PROPER WAY AND CANNOT GET IN CONTACT
TO OTHER PARTS CONNECTED TO VEHICLE
GROUND.

Additional safety switches like side stand switch have to be connected as shown in chapter 7.9.
7.8 Connecting Load Circuits
The m-Unit provides 8 independent circuits which are permanently supervised. At all connected
loads were the positive terminal switched, that means, from m-Unit’s output terminal lead one cable
to the load which is connected to vehicles earth. At the particular output only the intended load
must be connected. The connection scheme is shown on next page. If control lamps will be used;
these have to be connected in parallel to the load as shown in chapter 7.9

Simplified vehicle circuit diagramm with m-Button (optional accessory)
The circuit diagram below shows a simplified vehicle wiring loom with use of the m-button.
Therefore 6 wires do not apply, because only one cable is needed to connect handle bar controls
with m-unit.
THE M-BUTTON MUST LOCATED INSIDE A METAL HANDLEBAR TUBE.
7.8.1 Important Notes
M-Unit’s Starter Motor Output „start“
Starter motors which coming with solenoid and a solenoid current consumption of maximum 30A
(like Valeo, Bosch, Harley Davidson) can be connected directly to the m-Unit’s „start“ output. In this
case a cable diameter of 2,5mm² has to be applied. All starter motors with external relay (like
Japanese Motorcycles) have to be still powered via the OEM relay. In this case m-Unit’s output
„start“ is connected with the relay which switches the actual cranking current (>100A). Some
Motorcycles have an additional relay to switch the start relay; this second relay is not needed.
One – Wire – Taillight
In conventional way is the output „brake“ is connected to the brake light and the output „AUX“
connected to the rear light. If you like to route only one wire for tail light and brake light together;
you have to adjust the right setting in the setup menu (chapter 8). Furthermore the rear light and
brake light will be connected in parallel and one terminal to m-Unit output “brake” and the other
terminal to earth. Observe polarity if an LED light is applied.
rear light (5W)
one wire to m-Unit
vehicle earth from
frame or rear fender
output "brake"
brake light (21W)
10
Auxiliary Output
Output AUX (auxiliary) powers the ignition system. The ignition system must be connected only
with this output. All further loads which are not listed in the drawing below (like heat grips, radio)
will be also powered only by this output circuit. If more than two cables should connected to AUX
outlet all necessary cables have to be combined with a external terminal.
Ignition Lock
If m-Lock from motogadget will be applied instead of a conventional ignition lock the m-lock
switching output (brown cable) can be connected directly to the m-Unit input „lock“. The delivered
m-Lock relay is not applicable.
Remarks:
Older Japanese motorcycles have ignition locks with integrated resistors (simplified theft security).
If the ignition lock will be removed the ignition system is only functional if a certain wire which was
connected ignition box with key lock is connected with a resistor to ground or plus. The necessary
resistor can be measured at the ignition lock and purchased in a electronic supply shop.
If the vehicle comes with a immobilizer system this system is deactivated by a transponder inside
the ignition key. In this case the ignition lock can not removed.
