      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 .

2005 Yammy f115 making a squeeling noise?

Recommended Posts

I have about 30 hours total on my f115. After coming accross the lake at high speed when i throttle down to a fast idle. My engine will make a squeeling squeaking noise for about a minute or until I shut it down. It is fine at high speed or while idleing during fishing. Any one have any ideas as to how I could fix this problem. The engine runs great it is just real annoying. Something need to be adjusted or oiled?

DR:

There is a drive shaft bushing that needs to be lubricated. Yamaha issued a bulletin on it. It does not hurt anything-just annoying. If you talk to your dealer, he will be able to get you fixed up. You have to drop the lower unit and apply some special grease Yamaha recommends to the bushing-takes care of the problem.

You can spray some lubricant at the noise location without dropping the lower unit. Look under the motor in the area where it hangs on the transom. There is a gap where you can see the problem area/bushings.

Don't sweat the noise, as mentioned it's very common and has been since Yamaha came out with their four-strokes. My buddy had one (200HP) back around 2000-2001 and it did the same thing when new.

I know you have to use Silicone, since it is a rubber bushing. Thanks for the picture. I read more about this last night online. But couldn't find a picture to fully understand. Now I know, thanks!
