    Strange. It seems like this has been a problem for quite some time and nobody here mentions the "red(green) light trigger"??? Maybe many of you have bad experience or think it is a scam, but I have one installed in all of my bikes with a "low iron content", usually taped in the belly pan of the fairing or to the horizontal bar of the centerstand. They work for me, together with moving my bike on top of the visible groove of the wire location in the pavement, usually on the left side.
    I haven't been caught on a red light for years.

    If you are talking about those magnets that tape on your bike, forget it with a GSA. I'm into to those for about 40$, with no positive results. I was told by a Mass. state highway worker, that some lights coming off the highway need more than one vehicle to trigger, and sure enough,at some lights if you back up and then pull forward again they work.

    Agreed.

    Had one - didn't do a thing.

    I thought they discombobulated the molecular field of the flux capacitor resident in all red light sensors - thereby turning the light green or causing an earthquake. Yours must have been set on "Earthquake". You need to open it up and select "Green Light" on the dip switch settings. People in Iran will thank you.

    Hey, its late in the day and I'm tired.

    I used a magnetic thing about ten years ago, it worked. It would not work now.

    The sensors have been updated. My bike will trigger most here.

    The triggers have been updated also. As I said, mine do work. Maybe it depends on which State you're in.
