The m-Unit Blue packs unbelievable amount of tech into a tiny package with a footprint smaller than the average smartphone. At it’s core a solid-state micro controller and fuse block replacement manages your bikes vital functions while providing a self-correcting monitoring system for electrical faults. In addition it offers scores of features while simplifying your system by replacing loose relays and modules with programmable solid state components that provide superior performance and long term reliability.

The new m.Ride phone app enables you to sync your phone with the m-Unit Blue via Bluetooth® LE technology giving you access scores of new features absolutely unique to this product. Not sure you want that level of connectivity? No problem, program and diagnose your m-Unit manually just like the V.2

Perhaps our favorite feature is the Secure Encrypted “Keyless Go” function allowing you to turn on the ignition with a tap of the start button while your phone in in proximity like a modern luxury car, alternativly you can use your traditional key when your phone isn’t available.

Make sure you review all of the features in the new m-Unit Blue in the tabs above.

    Bought this because of Rivival Cycles!

    Posted by Tom Buck on Aug 26th 2018

    I have been looking at the m.unit for quite some time waiting for iOS compatibility. Once that happened, I think I watched Stefan's m.Unit videos more times than I care to admit....that sold me... along with a ton of other "gotta haves" (wire harness, m.Switches, m.Button, etc etc). I don't think I would have gone this direction if not for Revival Cycles videos and support! I installed all of this myself, and it has been running flawlessly the past few months. Thanks Guys!

    Far better than my very high expectations

    Posted by Tom S. on Mar 19th 2018

    The m-unit blue is absolutely amazing. I purchased it when it became one too many relays. Jeff provided a personal review of my wiring diagram that was far above the call of duty.

    My initial desire was to simply clean up wiring on my bike but I bought the wiring kit, the plastic loom, the split loom and the thing looks fantastic.

    The stuff that I found amazing and great were:
    - status lights of all inputs / outputs: If you pressed kill it turns of the coils, press and hold and it turns coil input back on and you can tell by lights.
    - current drops of all inputs / outputs: amazon asked the watts of my headlight and could pop the device display and see current drop for hi/low. Amazing
    - alarm sensitivity - 6 settings: Can set alarm to warn with a touch of handlebar or when I roll six feet out the garage.
    - turn signals as running lights / brake light flash settings: Can turn the turn signals to go on with a various levels of brightness and many options for brake light flashing.
    - bluetooth on: I did not think i would use this but it is cool. I am kick start and had to add a momentary pushbutton to start pin but i can set distance to enable, turn signals flash, push button and am off. To power off double click start button. have a motogadget RFID m-lock but have not used it since but have as a backup.

    Programming the settings over bluetooth is so simple and so glad I got the blue tooth version. In addition the bluetooth works in parallel with my helmet bluetooth and will make an audible click in my helmet to remind me the turn signal is on.

    Have not installed speed sensor yet but with that it gives maintenance warnings based on mileage. I tell everyone that the electrical system on my 50 year old motorcycle is better than my 2 year old car.

    Thanks to Jeff for his help, thanks for having everything I need in one place, and Stefan for the awesome tutorial videos... I cannot say enough good things about Revival and about the m-unit blue. Friend who recommended bought before blue was available and now I am so happy to have waited.

    m-unit blue

    Posted by ray r. on Feb 10th 2018

    Overall, I'm super impressed with Motogadget. This device is amazing like the v2, but with the added blue tooth capability. I am using it with an i-phone and it doesn't always connect with the blue tooth.

    4 things to note:

    1-I have been using a v2 M-Unit set up for 4 M-switches. I have used the light/left signal to start the bike. The m-unit blue really needs a stand alone start button (I hadn't seen that as a requirement prior to installing) if you are going to use the key-less start function.

    2-For some reason the M-unit blue has you 'sync' the miles/km to a 30 second ride at a constant speed. I would have thought they would use a tire diameter/impulses per revolution index like the chronoclassic I have on the bike (more precise and would track exactly like the odometer)

    3-Since the bike doesn't always connect with blue tooth without restarting the app or re-establishing the blue tooth in the settings, I'm not sure I'm ready to use it for keyless starts. Maybe as the m-ride app gets updated some of these nuances will be improved.

    4-the new interface is so much better for the 'settings'. Even little things like being able to turn on/off the parking feature, alarm settings, keyless start, etc. Also, I love the m-ride features of storing information about the bike. I recently got a ticket for not having registration and proof of insurance on my person when I got pulled over.....now with the m-ride app, it's all there for all 3 bikes I ride. I think the M-unit blue is the biggest advancement in custom motorcycles since CNC machining, but maybe more significant.

    You can fill a 5 gallon bucket with all the wires and switches take off your bike when you use one of these.

    best thing ever!

    Posted by Matthew A. on Dec 16th 2017

    if your doing a rewiring this device is a must have it makes wiring so much easier and gives you more control to do anything you want with the wiring and eliminates the headache of blown fuses and resistors/relays!

    M unit blue

    Posted by Timothy N. on Dec 8th 2017

    All in all great product , but I do wish it had seperate inputs for high/low beam , so you can run OEM handlebar switches and not rely on running a M switch .. if it had that a bunch more of my friends would already have one .. like I said all in all great product and have already reccomended / showed it off to my friends ..

    I also reccomended junking your old wiring harness for one of Revivals universal harnesses , great quality product and let's you wire the bike how YOU want instead of trying to integrate the M unit or CDI ignition into some old junk harness !

    The best!

    Posted by D. H. on Dec 1st 2017

    This device is simply the best solution for a clean wiring harness. From someone who knows nothing about electrics, the m-Unit helped me get my around the individual components, the theory of how it all works and the courage to dive in and install on my bike. It’s a great way to introduce the novice to this area of rebuilds and help them research and learn, and with the help of the Revival tech support team, you can’t fail! A fantastic product from a fantastic team.
