      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 .

I recently bought an 89 exciter that was completely gone through and redone. The first time i start it for the day is bugger, I havta pull tell i'm about spent, it belches gas from the exhaust when it finally does start, which it always does, from that point on during the day it starts first pull every time, idles nice, runs smooth, rides nice, any ideas would be great as i am farely new to sledding. Thanks

sounds like you need to check the needle and seat. sounds like the gas is not getting stopped at the carb. actually flooding the motor.

I think I have had about 12 sleds and everyone one of them had their own little way of starting. Sometimes it's just learning what it wants. How long are you keeping the choke on? The last Yama I had I would put the chock on, and as soon as it would fire once I would take it off and pull it again. I had another sled that would do the same thing but I would have to choke, fire, turn choke off, pull choke again, fire, then choke off. Keep playing with different things each time to see what works best. It sounds like you are flooding it out with maybe just a little to much choke. wink

Sounds like its flooding. Check the needle and seat as stated above. If it has a shut off on the fuel line try turning it off when not in use. If the case is filling with fuel from a leaky seat you can bend a rod if you try and start it and it fires with the crank case full of gas

Till you get the carbs cleaned and new needle and seats, as said shut the gas off.

Do that before you shut the engine down and let the sled run just till you hear the RPMs start to increase.

Its flooded! If no gas shut off is installed I would recommend putting one on. Gas is running into the carbs just sitting so make sure to drain the lower crank of excess gas, new plugs and try again. Not sure on where or if the exciters have drain plugs if they do it should be a 10mm bolt.

Good luck,

MR

Thanks for the info guys, the carbs had been gone through and I"m working on putting in a fuel shut off. So hopefully that works, thanks again!

If you're lifting up the track or elevating the back end gas will flow into carbs that might be the problem too.

I thought the exciters had a fuel shut off? I know my old one did. Located at the bottom of the steering council area, black plastic petcock.

    • Thanks. I decided to go with my gut, and ordered medium light action 8'6" Depthmaster rods. Spent some time trolling with them the other day, and I think they'll be fine. Just gotta remember to be careful with the larger fish around the boat when netting. Now if I could just better understand seasonal locations/presentations for my local walleye, I'd be all set! Trolled for 4.5 hrs without so much as a nibble yesterday. Trolled various cranks and harnesses the entire time, at different depths/speeds (1.0-1.5 mph with harnesses, and 1.8 -2.4 with cranks), hoping to make contact with one. I did find the Precission Trolling app to be pretty darn accurate with my dive curves though. So that was refreshing ... :-)
    • Nice bird! After my uneventful day Sat I gave Sunday a break Going out Monday morning to see If I can tag one.
    • Just me, or is 7:15 odd for birds to fly up to roost? 2 just flew up 75 yds out.
    • Congrats Donbo. Great looking bird.  
    • Way to go Ryan, and Dad. Can't wait to see the pics. Congrats
    • Well good weekend in the woods! Never got a bird in range! Will be back out! Nice Donbo!!!
    • Good job Wally, always love to see your early season successes.  Nice bird AS!  Long season ahead with no tag in the pocket huh?
    • Good job guys! Great start to the season.
    • Totally agree with you featherslayer. I have a bud who will be down May 2. Just as much fun calling for him and figuring strategy as shooting one myself. More fun actually.
    • Very disappointing season so far. Getting swept by Tampa Bay is unacceptable! No reason to believe we won’t get swept by the Yankees either. 4 game series against the twins could be exactly what Giancarlo Stanton needs to break out of his slump.
