Is there away to make the pop bumpers more sensitive? I already adjusted the contacts.

No body knows how to adjust the pop bumpers?

Wow man, this thing looks awe some. Knowing you it will play like a beast.

The closer the contacts, the more sensitive they are.

Too close and you will get false triggers (bang on the playfield near the pops to test).

Thanks I will try that.

I just worked on my gnr pops this weekend. This helped a lot:

1. Adjusting the switch contacts so they just BARELY are gapped. Go back and double check yours. Can you get them closer without them touching?

2. I slid a business card in between the gap and clamped it with my fingers to clean the switch.

My pops are a lot better now.

I have the contacts close. I will try the card to clean them. They just dont register half the time.thanks.

Tat: really clean them with a business card or the like. I pinch the contacts together as I slide the card in and out. Usually you'll see a little black residue.

Other than that, there isn't much you can do. DE pins don't have the best pops. Stinks too as I like to pick Super Pops at the start of each ball.

Great pin.

Great pin.

Did the card and it works great now. Night and day diffrence. So happy with the pops now. Thanks

Great!

I debated replacing the switches altogether but that would be quite a pain in the ass.

Does make a difference just cleaning them.
