    I bought a Kiss Pro last week and purchased a shaker for it as well. It's a Stern shaker for the Spike system. The shaker came with a capacitor kit to plug into the power cable going into the node board. I installed it but when I went to power up the pin, it caused all sorts of problems. I removed the capacitor kit and pulled the shaker connector and the machine went back to normal. I didn't want to plug in the shaker without the capacitor kit for fear of blowing the board.

    Any ideas? Should I just plug in the shaker and leave the capacitor kit out? I read the Stern service bulletins but I'm beginning to think that with the Kiss pin, the Stern shaker is plug and play without the capacitor kit.

    Thanks

    Worked like a charm on Aerosmith this week.
    There was someone on the Areo forums having shaker problems.
    They claimed they had a Kiss without the capacitor.
    Worst case email stern to confirm for your game.

    Thanks for the response BMHouze.

    I'll email Stern. If in fact, I don't need mine, I'll mail it to you. I saw your post on the forum.

    Mine is working fine.
    Clips are pretty snap happy.
    I am definitely getting 2 spare male to male connectors.
    I want a good solid connection, I don't want the game shaking anything loose.
    I know someone who regularly passes Sayal on the way to work.

    Pretty sure you will need it to not void any warranty.

    For future reference, the Stern capacitor kit is not required on the kiss pro when installing a Stern shaker
