what do you have to do to change the light? Get in the middle of the lane with all of the oil and like that.

Put your kickstand down and make sure you are in the sensor area

They got a lil sensor you can buy at Cycle Gear and tie wrap to the bottom of your bike. Or put the kickstand down, get off and jump up and down while yelling at the top of your lungs. Works everytime.

Take a look around when you are at that intersection. Look for the square/rectangular cuts in the ground near the stop bar. Position the bike over one of the cuts. Why? That's where the detector loop is located. You could also try putting your kickstand down on top of the cut/loop as well. If you still cannot get a green light, call the party responsible for maintaining that traffic signal and tell them to come adjust it.

yeah, heavier than most import cars!

I do the old trick of hitting your starter while sitting right over the sensor. Most of the time, I end up running the light.

I put my tires on top of the sensing wire. If it doesn't change then "no cop no stop" goes into effect.

This will happen you need to deal with it.
The light is NOT weight triggered they are often triggered by interuption of a magnetic field, this requires a magnetic conducting material such as steel

The kick stand trick may work it helps to contect to the field.

I typicaly weight 1 cycle of the light to assure it is skipping me then I either carefully run it or carefully go straight and U-Turn later.
If the light says turn on green arrow only then I definately go straight and U-Turn

Key is patience and being careful

Often by the time you wait 1 cycle a car will have pulled up behind you if you are far enough forward it may trip the sensor.

Well that my understanding and what I do.

Depends on the light...

I wont wait through 3 cycles though. I'll run it after the first one. It usually only happens late at night, and at the last one or two before I get home.

I believe the statute says that you must wait one full light cycle, then proceed safely through the intersection.

Don't say things like this unless you know, and then you should add references. Otherwise you are just spreading rumors that don't mean anything.
The post about being magnetically triggered is correct. The problem for many bikes is they have so little steel that they won't trigger the light. Not much you can do about it, except try the kickstand method. There is also a mfr that sells a decent size magnet you can put on the bottom of your bike to help trigger.
There was a law passed recently that says that the light must recognize all legal vehicles but it will be years before the state can make that a reality. It does offer a possible defence if you take the ticket to court.

Go to STX, buy the stop light sensor magnet for less than $30. Read the mounting directions....this thing is so powerful it will hurt you if you are between the exposed magnet and the metal you install it too as it jumps from it"s box to the metal.

My wife has one on her Harley and we never have issue at stop lights when she is riding....great piece of equipment.
