      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 own a 1985 honda interceptor 500. just got a question about it please help if you can.

i took a plastic cover off the "pivot" point on the handle bars. under it is what looked like the valve that you put air in tires with. i pressed the little center button and one side had a quick squirt of oil. the side that needs fork seals only air came out. What are the valves for? i think they are for filling the oil but am not sure how, special tool?

thanks in advance Pooh

air forks, and they run very low pressure, specs are probably 3-7 psi per side. I am sure, unless they have been regularly maintaind, the seals need replacing, new fork oil installed and proper PSI appled.

Chilton manuals are cheap and can be found online.

You have to open up the forks to put in oil, but, its not a real simple process,,,get a manual or find a qualified mechanic

See if you can find a Honda service manual for that model. Go online at Honda Direct Line. It's not hard if you have a little guidance. Some dealers may not even look at it because of its age. Its probably older than most of the young guys working on it!!!

shouldnt stump you too badle, although you may need a special tool or so. I have in the past gotten them dissasembled to a certain degree, then took the legs in and had them R?R the seals. Find a shop that will work with you in that manner and go for it!

That 500 Interceptor is a collector bike, one of the finest middleweights Honda EVER made, and a real keeper.
