      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 .

suzuki 70 hp tiller questions

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 70 Suzuki 4 stroke tiller and was looking for some info regarding idle speeds . My motor idles at 680 rpms and this is to fast for trolling even in reverse . The motor has a troll button that will adjust the rpms but will only drop 10 or so , it will increase the rpms but that is not what I need .The dealer has no experience with them so is of no help. I was under the impression that the troll button should drop the idle speed significantly the same way it worked on my Yamaha.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Also any thoughts on the back trolling plates that flip down in behind the prop ?

Cheers

What year is the motor? I know in 2012 they revised the handle with the "troll" mode, but from what I read it only increases the RPM from idle, not decrease. So the idle speed appears to be the lowest it will go. At least from what I can find.

the motor is 2011,just purchased last month never been used . They had to order in the tiller handle so I assume it is the new version .

The rpm's may sound correct, call Frankies in Chisago. Best suzuki dealers I have worked with.

I have had two Suzukis a 60 for 680 Ranger & now a 90 for the 690. If Feeling your moving to fast use a small drift sock. I have two sizes a 30" & a 54" works great for windy days on Mille Lacs. Also check your prop pitch. th
