    How'd you get on with the M-Unit? Was it as easy to setup as it looks? Planning to use one for my build but haven't actually purchased one - the price is a but painful.

    A seat might be the one thing I have only 1 of! Let me double check tonight though!

    Awesome! Not sure how cross compatible they are, but I have about 4x bikes worth of CB360 parts sitting in my garage. So shout out if you're missing anything niggly!

    Installed the carbs today. She's really coming together. Not to much to do now Purchase and install M-Unit + finish wiring. Fabricate a number plate bracket and rear indicator mounts. Install tachometer blanking plug. Maybe purchase new tires (I'm wanting something dual sport). Fill with oil, set points and timing and start her up!

    Sure can. It's hard to see from that angle, but the end of the lever bottoms out on the grip. It actually clears that back button by a few millimetres.

    Installed the controls today by routing the cables through the bars. Pretty tricky but if you were good at the boardgame 'Operation' as a kid I'm sure it'll be a breeze.

    Awesome, might look into the wiring harness! Yeah I've actually got a set of the MMC switches. They just don't fit very well on my bars because of how much horizontal space I have before the bar bend.

    I agree, 30 seconds is ridiculously long. I forget to turn my indicators off half the time anyway haha. I don't currently have a solid harness so wiring one with the M-Unit should be more straight forward. Inputs in one side, outputs on the other. And it's even easier if you run the M-Button. It's just the price which is a bit hard to swallow!

You can also choose latching or momentary buttons when you purchase. I'm using momentary to work alongside an M-Unit. And good question. I will be using a Motogadget M-Unit to wire the motorcycle which takes care of most of the below functions. Here's an idea on how I think will run them. Left side Top button: Left indicator. Press to start, press to stop. Will time out after 30sec. Bottom button: Horn. Back button: M-Unit Config. Right side Top button: Right indicator. Press to start, press to stop. Will time out after 30sec. Bottom button: Headlight. Always on. Tap to flash highbeam, hold down to turn on highbeam. Hold down longer to turn headlight off. Back button: Not assigned as of yet. Maybe electric starter if I decide to get that working or a momentary kill switch. Hope that all makes sense!

    New cables arrived and seem to fit all good. Also got a set of these badboys. Essentially Motogadget knockoffs - definitely the nicest made product I've ever purchased off Ali!

    Genius! I'll give this a whirl next time I have to attempt it!

    It's 60mm in diameter. I bought it from China through Taobao using an agent (I purchase a lot of random things from there). Cost me a whopping $12.86.

    Wow it's been a while. Purchased most of the parts I need to finish this thing off. New cables & switches on their way. Installed a speedometer today. Decided to flag having a tacho as I don't really need it and I like the look of having a single centred gauge.

    The GB looks dope as hell with the black decals/wheels with the grey tank. Love it!
