      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 .

EFI vs Carbs

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if there is a major difference from EFI to Carbs on an ATV. I am looking at possibly purchasing one and trying to find out if there is a noticeable difference.

Thanks,

i have a 2006 kawi brute force with a carbed 650 v-twin and have not had one problem with starting no matter how cold just have to let it warm up for a good 5 minutes, but you should do that with any machine wether it is EFI or not. If it is going to cost you extra to get EFI, i would say that it is not worth it! But it is nice

EFI should get a little better mileage. You can fix a carburetor yourself.....I have a carb now but almost all of the new machines have EFI. Haven't heard of much trouble with it.

Thats another good point, if there r things that need to be fixed a carb is much easier and less expensive to fix! EFI just means more electronics to worry about!

Carb on my 500 sportsman and it run awesome. Like mentioned earlier you have to let it warm up a while in the winter, but you should do it anyways.

For me up to a grand more just wasn't worth it.

Have friends that have EFI's and they do like them, they have had carbs before and see no difference.

I have two 500 sporties one with EFI and one without. the one with carb starts instantly the EFI has to crank for a second even if the ignition has been on for a while. but the EFI has better throttle responce and is easyer on fuel. And both are fun !! my 2 cents

I have 2 Polaris's, 700 carb and an 800 EFI. The carb I had to jet it bigger to get to not be so cold blooded, now its just fine. The EFI is GREAT, turn the key on , wait 2 seconds till the fuel pump stops, hit start on its running NOW, any temp, any angle, any altitude. Not with a carb. The EFI is way more responsive but both of mine take the same amount of fuel. I would go EFI and my next Sled will be EFI also.

thanks for everyone's input, I think both would suit my needs so now comes the fun part of looking around. Hopefully be able to report back with some pictures eventually.
