I love that they promote safety in the video, so how does that save more time than just hitting the sensor by riding over the center?

I've done everything short of laying the bike down on its side at intersections to get the stupid light to change - both the R6 and FZ6 and its of no use. I'm gonna give it a shot. I'll post real world results.

a 5 lb block of lead works too.


Park on the side of the loop line, put you kick stand down on the line if its not triggering.


Magnets have a pull on them and if you have electronics on your bike it can effect them. Be careful

Erase the EEPROM on the CPU and you're in trouble.

i am going to try this, i am getting tired of running reds...maybe 1 in 5 lights out here seems to be able to see my bike, even when i have it right on top of multiple inductive loops.

I am not sure how on earth a magnet would be able to erase the eeprom....as in Electronically Erasable Programmable Memory.....its not a hard drive we are talking, its a solid state IC!

Think you'd be okay if you were to mount them on the Swing arm, down real low? Maybe under the axle?

It's not going under my seat silly. It goes on the lowest part on your bike. Pretty sure there will not be a problem.

While a magnet cannot truly erase an EEPROM, if it is up and running, and you have a magnet strong enough to disrupt electrical fields, then you can cause harm by distorting and currupting the image on the EEPROM. Thus rendering it useless. Strong EMF has cause some faults with some EEPROM products we engineer.

Good point...I think I am gonna hook my traffic light magnet up to my battery and make a super strong electromagnet to set of traffic lights. I may make it 20 feet before my bike dies, but at least that 20 ft will be w/o traffic lights.

I have a similar issue with the rear on my car and my truck. The rear passenger sensor on my tires seems to work on and off. Unless I rotate them and then the ones I move back there, work intermittingly. It cost me 100 bucks for Nissan to fail to diagnose the issue.

I have heard that the window tint can be an issue. That is the only common factor between the car and truck that and they are both Nissan.

I guess if you did this magnet thing whitelining the toll would be out of the question then.

beeing in the center of the loop does not help, you need to be near the wire, so stop within a foot of the wire either inside or outside, if you stop near the corner of the loop then you chances are even better.

on most bikes you can hit the start button while the bike is running without it grinding like on a car. Try your bike and see if it works. Hit the stater at the light for a second, the magnetic feild in the starter will help also.

If it doesn't trip for me, I just put the kickstand down on the line and that works 99% of the time. The wires are in the cut lines in the pavement, so stop on them or drop the stand down.
