      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 .

Value of a sled?

Recommended Posts

Where does one go to find the resale value of a sled. I bought a 2003 two up for my wife Dec of 05 off the show room floor, after she got one ride on it she was severly injured at work and we are still in recovery mode for her. The doctors say that she shouldnt get real excited about being able to get out and trail ride anymore so i'm thinking of selling it this fall. I found some places for pricing but this thing has 38 miles on it and is in perfect shape - not that I want new for it just an idea of "fair" for both parties involved. Does anyone here know where I could start to look or who I could contact....Thanks...F&F...

Leech...thats funny right there.. laugh...I did the Kelly thing but unlike cars you cant put in miles or condition..it just lumps all 03's of that model in together. If there are two side by side and one has 38 miles and the other has 5800 miles the values will be different. I'm not a huge sled guy so I dont have the ability to judge the difference fairly.

I bought the same sled for my wife, used, season before last with 1700 miles. It was $2400. In very nice shape. I hope this gives you an idea. I would love to get another one, it's a great machine.

Another place to get some ideas, is to punch it up on HSO-Classifieds or C/list and try to get a price range from what others are asking for their's. But FF I'll still give you $1000 cash today! grin leech~~

I assisted in the sale of a 2000 Triple Touring (600cc) 2-up machine last winter and it fetched $2200 right away. It had about 1500 miles and mint condition.

Personally, in the fall/early winter $3500 or so is not unreasonable for that machine with 38 miles. It's not even broken in yet! I would start there and see what happens. There are not a lot of touring machines out there, and they seem to be in demand.

HSO-Classifieds sells for higher prices in the fall and winter then it will around here. There isn't a large demand for 2 up touring sleds either so the larger the area you can advertize the better chance you will get the price you are looking for.

    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
