Not my basic, but a new HPN project.

If you would like to make the wiring simpler by using the M-unit you might have to lose some original features.
Switching off the indicators using the original switches you might have to use the on button to switch them off as well.
This is about the only point I did not find in their documentation. And: no stock functions will have to be dropped. You can, but you don't need to.

The same with the Relief relay ( if thats the right word) that switches off the head light when starting.
Well: sure threre will be some wiring left - from all the switches to the m-Unit and power lines back. "Neutral" is integrated, "clutch" I could definitely live without, "kill" is easy. The functionality of the relief relay is inside the m-Unit, as well as blinker and all the rest (except heated grips).

But I'm not with the sales dept. of these guys, I'm looking for experience.

@Bill: no, it's not. There's a looong way from this to a CAN bus system. It's a replacement for all (!) relays and fuses, that's all.
The difference between theory and practice practically is larger than the difference between theory and practice theoretically.
