      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 .

Just doing a quick search on this, there isn't a quick fix that I can see. Check the hub fluid and are you running stock tires? All the same size?

Aside from this, maybe have a dealer check it out unless you are mechanically enclined.

Post copied from nyroc HSOforum...........

My Father-n-law bought a used 2004 Sportsman 600 twin. Looks New low miles and Hours. After He rode it a while he noticed that it was never in 2wd. The front wheels always kicked in no matter what the switch said.

1st: We drained the fluid and put brand new Polaris Hub oil in. No change

2nd: Then we searched the web. No fix, all recommended changing fluid.

3rd: Took the diff out and took it apart. Then we saw the poblem. even with the switch off the coil still held enough magnetic force to hold the armature plate keeping it in AWD all the time. Ok so now we see the problem but how do you fix it.

Well we new the distance from the actual coil and the Armature plate was the prob. The plate showed a little wear but not much. We used a DA sander and carfully sanded the armature plate until the two ring like wear marks were not visible and then reinstalled it.

Works perfect!

There is an updated part number for that armature plate. The new one has less surface area so it won't stay stuck to the coil even when the switch is off. If you end up taking it apart yourself, be sure to carefully inspect the plastic cage that holds all the rollers. If there is even a small crack in that cage, you're 4X4 will stay locked in.

As mentioned previously the armature plate sometimes had a tendancy to stay engaged due to the plate being too flat. A quick fix to this that I have found is to remove the hub and take the armature plate out and place it on a flat surface and take a center punch with a slightly rounded tip and place a small divit or dent in the armature plate. This will allow it to still engage when you switch it to 4x4 but when you switch it off the small dent with allow the plate to break the magnetic field and disengage the 4 wheel drive. It's a little bit of a pain but it's relatively easy and will save taking it in. Hope this is clear enough and helpfull. If not, shout back and I will try and get in touch with you to explain it better.

    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy instead.   
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL.

    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
    • OK, whatever..  Maybe a qualifier if it is not the global "we"
