This method worked like a charm! Thanks! I bought the same one off amazon recommended earlier in this thread.

Sorry to bump this older thread, but I bought two coin taker shaker motors for my BKSOR and Elvira 3 and...wow...very powerful shakers. Where can I find this shaker strength adjustment kit today and does it work with Spike? Thanks in advance.

I heard there were issues with the Spike games so I didn't risk it. Do you have a shaker in an older game that you can swap into the spike game, then the Red Tremor with the PWM into that? I did that with my Maiden, pulled the Stern shaker out of Spiderman and put the Tremor in there. PWM worked great. Set it once and forgot about it. Won't buy a Tremor again.

Cointakers website said it was Spike compatible, at least I think it did. I’ll go check and maybe give them a call.

When I installed it in test mode it made my bksor move across the floor, literally.

DO NOT hook a PWM controller up to Spike . It will blow out a node board. For Spike I always ask them to send the regular ones.

Did you try to adjust the weights? Make them close to 180 degrees of each other for minimal rumble.

You ask Cointaker to send a regular one? Thanks!

So true.
