      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 .

Where to find parts?

Recommended Posts

I have a 92 Yamaha Grizzly 450. It needs a new starter and a recoil (the recoil was broke when I got it). Is there a place to find used parts fairly inexpensive or even new parts? I haven't been able to find them.

If you're looking for used parts, Sportwheels in Jordan might have something.

Otherwise your local Yamaha dealership would be the best place.

Are you sure the starter is shot, and doesn't just need brushes?

I wouldn't know, I'm as mechanically inclined as a nat. I can do the oil changes on it, change the batter, spark plugs, other simple things. Learning more as I go as having a boat and wheeler is teaching me to fix these things. How would I know that? It doesn't crank at all, no sound nothing, push the start button and there is nothing there.

Lep is correct, I meant a Kodiak, sorry about that. Me not so smrat sometimes. crygrin

Kodiak 400. Do you know if the battery has juice? It has a backup recoil starter correct? Have you tried to jump start it?

Yea, it's a new battery. The lights do come on when I turn them on. The recoil is busted on it so that's another part I need. I haven't tried to jump it yet. Would you do that the same as you do a car?

If it's got a good battery that's fully charged I don't think jumping it would do anything. Is the key, and the run button both in the on position? Have you looked to see if the ignition wires are intact? I don't know if there's anyway to jump a cylinoid (spell?) on an atv?

If it is the brushes, a couple taps on the starter should seat them on the armature enough to get you going a few more times. Since you don't have anything at all happen when you hit the starter button, I think I would look more at the solinoid. Also make sure your battery is charged, connections tight and not corroded. You shoulb be able to jump around the solinoid with a screwdriver or heavy wire and see if your starter will turn. If it does, you have a good starter, battery, cables, and a bad switch or solinoid.
