      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 .

Yamaha noise at idle

Recommended Posts

I have a 2004Yam 4-stroke 150 and the last two seasons it has started making a higher pitched whirling sound at idle, instead of the usual quiet idling from seasons before. It runs perfectly, and has been professionally winterized each time. Just curious why it would all of a sudden start sounding different one Spring. Any thought?

Thanks

Is it a squeak like a noisy fanbelt on a car engine? If it is, it's pretty common with Yamaha 4-strokes. There is a place under the motor where you can shoot a little silicone spray in there to quiet it down.

Maybe I'll pop the cover this weekend and see if it's a belt. I do also hear the squeal from time to time from the bushing (that's what I've been told it is), and the whirling at idle is something different than that.

Thanks
