      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 .

Amsoil in Hondas

Recommended Posts

Anyone running Amsoil in there Hondas? A friend of mine told me the clutch will slip with synthetic oil, he, by the way is a Yamaha guy. Any opinions or real non-bias experiences?

A friend is now a amsoil dealer, But he had problems back in 2003 with a foreman with tranny slipping. Maybe they changed the formula

since then.

I think it may depend on the model. I'm pretty sure with the Rincon you should never use synthetic.

You can use synthetic oil in hondas as long as it was made for atv use. Honda makes synthetic themselves. My dad's been running amsoil 0w-40 in his rubicon for awhile. Lots of people use synthetic in their rincons.

2000 Honda Foreman S and been using Amsoil for years. I have noticed when I work my machine hard, and get it hot I have had some shifting issues. It's hard to explain (no expert here) but it's not slipping the clutch, more like sticking. The shifting gets difficult, and "clunky".

I don't know if it's the oil or if it's all the work I throw at the machine year round...wear and tear?

Chuck, I had the same issue with mine early on. I talked to a Honda tech and the first thing he told me to do was put Honda motorcycle and ATV oil back in. I did and haven't noticed it any more and I'll turn 9000 miles in a month or so.
