Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to let you guys know that Canada Post has been on strike since last Monday.
Apparently this is a 'rotating strike', so it's more of a slow-down than a full stoppage of service.

Either way, if you have placed a recent order, they have been mailed, but they may take slightly longer than the usual 7-10 business days that is the norm for Canada to US letter mail.

Sorry for any delay you may experience

As a "mod" this is one that when I look at my machine, it doesn't look like a mod. It looks like it was supposed to be there from the factory. Hence the "missing plastic" name, no doubt.

If you have a White Water and don't have this plastic, your machine isn't complete.....

Totally agree. I agree so much I just bought one

Anyone have any recommendations for me? 35% of the time I go up Big Foot Bluffs my ball comes back down. It's hitting the top of the switch (I have circled in white). I didn't know what the easiest fix for this would be?

WH2O ramp cover (resized).png

Years ago there was a guy that made a ramp cover that fixes that problem by keeping the ball down in the ramp. It looked like this. It also helped correct broken out mount points for the switch.

Any idea who was selling them?

No. This was back in 2007. Maybe the guy will pop up here. You can make it yourself. It doesn't have to be perfect. It's hidden under the mountains. Or find some guy who makes protectors and have him cut you one. I have a pdf of that sketch. PM me and I can email it to you.

On my game I just raised up the switch a bit. Just loosen the two small screws on the switch body and push the switch as far up as it'll go. Then tighten it about halfway and try passing a ball through. If you don't hear the switch 'click', drop the front a little until it does.

I think I also put a few washers or spacers between the switch bracket and ramp to raise it a tiny bit more.

I believe I got a plastic from Pinbits that fixed this a couple of years ago. Think it was this one, but seems it's out of stock:

Remove the right most spacer and replace it with a post rubber ring. Now, tighten the ball guide down until you hit the rubber ring. This will route the ball under the switch. You can use a ruler to test the angle and see that the ball is brought down below the switch.
