I have one. It works for most traffic lights, and it worked for the gates at my apartment. You can get it for I believe the same price at On The Border Motorcycles in Pasadena. But I am sure most motorcycle shops will have them in stock.

It's very small but strong. I have mine on the underside of a footpeg because there is no hard parts on the bottom that I can mount it on, other than exhaust, and that will melt right off. One side has a super strong adhesive on it.

Are you sure that you don't need a new card.
If you swipe the card and it changes colors, but doesn't open then you might just have a deactivated card

Exhaust would be a bad place to install these magnets as they will demagnetize at high (over 200F) temps.

If you are legally allowed to park there then just exit somewhere else like through the entrance or anywhere that there is a gap to fit through. Along a sidewalk, etc. You have a 250. You can get out anywhere you could fit a bicycle through. , if you can walk out of the garage then you can get a 250 out.

lol @ huffy

it's not that big a deal I just want to be able to get out the garage without the parking attendant having to get out her booth and waddle over to my exit if there is no other way then F**K it thats what they pay her for but i'm sure riding out the entrance will cause problems 250 or not.

yea, and eventually they will think you are "stealing" parking or something like that and atteempt to boot your bike.


anyway, if you bike can't fit out between the exit gate and the wall, come by with a hand saw and remove 6 or 8 inches so you can fit out the exit.

Nobody will notice.

Or buy a magnet.

If your parking at Ampco, you shouldnt need a magnet and your card is not properly activated.

Also, if you attached the card to a ring of other cards, that will make it not work correctly/scanner reads the other cards.

send an email/letter to the engineering dept/business office. explain your situation. ask them to see if they can switch the arms out w/motorcycle friendly arms. basically it is just a smaller arm so you can get by. we have those here in the med center but i also have a parking sticker on my bike that i was given so they know who actually has access and/or who did not pay.

Who cares what who thinks. You have contract parking and they do not have properly equipped facilities so **** em. Ride out the entrance, drive that bike through the lobby if you have to. I'm sorry but I get sick and tired of places not having bike parking in garages and parking lots. You park in a spot and someone because they can't see your bike and almost hit it. You park it somewhere else and someone that it isn't a parking spot. You park in between handicapped spots leaving enough room for a jumbo jet to get by let alone a wheelchair and you're an insensitive . So, park it where you want it, exit wherever the you want, and slap someone in the mouth on your way out. Okay I'm done ranting...where am I?
