What I like to know is how it operates as do you push it in twist it how it is mounted.
And the actual size of it or a picture reference on the size.
Hope I don't come off as to annoying cause I'm really interested in getting one for my bike.

The size of the actual M=Button is Diameter: 12 mm and Length: 25 mm.  You can really mounting it how every you want. 

You connect all you handlebar switches to it.  All the wires on it are labeled.  Then you run 1 single wire from the M-Button to your M-Unit.  This way you keep all your wires on the handlebars and only have one small wiring running from your bars to the M-Unit instead of several wires.

I think his question is how does that one button perform all those different functions? Is it tap once for left and twice for right, or do you keep all the usual switches and that little "button" simply translates those individual switch ON-OFF signals into a can-bus type signal to the M unit.

As I understand it, the switches would be wired (probably inside the bars) to the M button and a single wire would go from M button to the M unit and then the wires from M unit go to the signal lamps, headlight etc.  Yes/No?

This should help.  Here is a wiring diagram from Motogadget.  All your switches get wired to the M-Button.  Then you have 1 wire running from the M-Button to the M-Unit

The M-Button and M-Unit are essentially digital multiplexer/demultiplexers with one-way communication from the button to the unit.
The button receives a signal from the mechanical switch, encodes it digitally and sends the information to the unit.  The unit then decodes the signal and triggers the correct relay.  Wiring runs from the unit are still necessary to switch all of the necessary electricals on and off.

So yeah... one wire from the button to the unit, but you will still need wires running from the unit back up to the front of the bike for lights, signals, horn, etc.

It's a nice bit of kit and I want one.  :)

Good description Matt. 

I love the technology and shear "German-ness" of the solution.  I used an PC-8 at the front of the bike with a few strategically placed relays and use less wire than an M combo at a fraction of the cost.  It's not as elegant as an M solution though.

I've been a big fan of MotoGadget since they started to appear on top end streetfighters a few years ago.

Don't mean to drag up an old thread, but these guys by far had the best price on the M-unit and M-button.  I just ordered one of each for the new BMW.  Pretty stoked!
I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.
