Hi everyone! I had made a previous post about my Xenon’s flipper machine gunning which everyone was so gracious to offer tips on. That issue has been solved however I have a new question for the good people of Pinside.
Our Xenon runs great except for two issues we’ve been having with the tube shot.
1. The ball will exit the tube sometimes with so much velocity it skips over the kickout hole causing the machine to not record the shot and shuts off the sound until the ball re enters that hole. Any advice on how to ensure the ball always hits the kick out hole?
2. Right at the top of the ramp but before the tube, the ball will sometimes get stuck at this point, any adjustment here that can help?
Our machine is right at a 5.5 pitch abd is level so no adjustments needed for the feet.

Washer and wire are both there, however I wonder if the wire is supposed to stick out more? Tube is off but left clamp is held at the end not the center left as I’ve seen some set up.
White runner that is just sitting on the wire was our forst attempt to stop it, doesnt make good contact with the ball there. I had wondered about putting some padding on the metal wall that the ball always hits exiting the tube but thought that may look stupid.

Could I see a picture of someones coin lever replacement at the top of the ramp? Im just curious how far out the wire should come. Thank you everyone for your input ao far. Im getting an idea of what we have to do!
