      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Suzuki 115 4 stroke question

Recommended Posts

I own a 2001 Suzuki 4 stroke 115 HP. I have had a great experience with his motor. Last summer on one occasion and once this past week I pulled away from the dock and idled for about 30 seconds and hit the throttle. At about 3000 rpm the engine kind of surged and slowed a couple times. I backed her off the throttle and idled for about a minute and a half and took off with no further problems. I am wondering if this is a sign of a problem or do I just need to warm it up more or quit running ethanol? Pure premium gas is hard to find where I fish. Any ideas? The fuel filter is new.

You may want to lay off the ethanol gas and purchase non-oxygenated gasoline. I believe you can add products to your gas now if you use ethanol gasoline. Most gas does have a percentage in it.

Lawman,

I have the same motor also since new in 2001 and have nothing but great things to say. How may hours are on the motor? When is the last time you changed your spark plugs? Fouled plugs will cause situation you discribed.

Just had new plugs put in. This is a great motor, only 300 hours on it. I think its the fuel but have not had any problems ever. I will try the non=ox and see what happens.

If it's carbureated, might want to pull the carb and clean the jets. If you add some cleaner to the gas, it will probably work itself clean. But that sounds like a typical spring symptom with a lot of motors that sit all winter. Could just as well be stale gas too.

Did you prime the primer bulb till it was hard prior to taking starting?

It could just be warm-up time related.. at this point I don't think I'd do anything until it becomes more repeatable.
