      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 .

Tire pressure.

Recommended Posts

Again, new to wheelers. Checked my tires last night and had next to no pressure. It says not to go over 36psi per wheel on them. I put 20 psi in each one. What should I have them at? It's a '93 yamaha grizzley 400 4x4.

Yes, operating pressure is always under 7 psi. Some go over that and are fine, but stay less than 10 for sure. Mine are normally at 4-5 psi. There should be a sticker on the wheeler saying what psi for front and rear. I would guess it is 5 psi.

It's a Kodiak, right?

The 36 max is when you are seating the bead. It probably read next to nothing because you were using a regular tire pressure guage. You need to use a low pressure guage.

You want low pressure for added traction. I was amazed at this same fact when I bought mine a while back as well. I found out that the higher pressures actually make it dangerous to ride as well.

Speaking of tire pressures....where is a good place to pick up a low-pressure gauge for ATV tires? I can't find anything locally.

Didn't even think of Runnings. I'll have to check them the next time I'm there.

The local ATV dealer didn't have one. Kinda odd.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm looking for a dial type, BTW.

I had to experiment a lot to find the right tire pressure and suspension setting to make my 2004 650 cat ride the best with me on it. About 8 psi in the front helps mine turn better. Add another rider and the suspension needs to be bumped up. I usually don't bother because of how slow I drive with a rider. I run my tires a little fuller (10-12) in the winter to keep the chains tight when pulling the fish house. Keep the suspension soft and tires low when on hills to handle better and bounce the back end less. Rode my friends polaris and it was way different.
