      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!


Questions for can am w/tracks users

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I'm hopping to get some advise from some of you who are familiar with tracks on atvs.  I'm looking at buying a used 2009 Can am 800r that would include tatou 4s tracks as well as wheels on SS rims.  my questions are:


What are your thoughts on the 09 can ams (good machines)?

How hard is it to change between the tracks and tires?(i would want tires for summer use)

What are any issues I should expect with the tracks? I've never used them nor do I know anyone who does.

Lastly as for as tracks go how does the tatous stack up, did they make many improvements in the last 7 years (I'm Assuming the tracks are 09 as well)

Lastly if it was you buying it what would you feel is a fair price? (very good condition under 700 miles)


Thanks for any light you can shed

I'm no expert but I did a bunch of research on tracks recently. I just bought a Polaris sportsman and the polaris tracks. First off the Camoplast tracks are the top of the line none better. Look up and call they are great guys and will answer all your questions. The reason I went with the polaris tracks instead of the tatou 4s's was because the dealer had the polaris tracks in stock and most of the components on them are made by camoplast, Polaris and Camoplast designed the new polaris tracks together so I'm hoping they are similar in performance.


As far as removal and installation the anti rotation bar or what ever you want to call them usually have a mounting plate that attaches to the A-arm or frame. The tracs bolt right where the tire was removed and the anti rotation arm gets bolted to the bracket on the A-arm. So its a pretty simple deal as long as the toe-in is adjusted correctly it shouldn't take much more time than swapping tires.


As far as $ it seems the Tatou 4s go for around $3400-3600 new so used Id say worth $2500 in good condition?
