      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 .

50HP Honda 4 Stroke Rough Idle

Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 Honda 50HP 4 stroke. When at idle it sputters and kills on occasion. I looked at the owners manual and also a repair manual for it and could not find anywhere saying how to adjust the idle speed. Any suggestions?

It sounds like it could be a fuel issue / dirty carb issue to me as well.

Did you run fuel stabilizer through it prior to putting it away for the year?

I've got a '98 40hp honda. Only use non oxy fuel.

Borrowed it out and they filled it up with corn fuel. They didn't know. Ran like [PoorWordUsage] till that tank was gone. A couple things I do to mine is put a new fuel filter and plugs in it every year. Didn't one year and ran like [PoorWordUsage]. Also running it out of fuel at the end of the year seems to help. At the begining of the year I run a third of a can of seafoam with the first full 6 gallon tank of fuel. Mine runs great as long as I do those few things. If I don't it can get very moody and spit and sputter like yours. Another thing I do is let it warm up a bit if it is fairly cool out before going full throttle with it.

I have a 50 hp Yamaha 4 stroke and was told to use Yamaha Ring Free Fuel Additive with stable all the time. It'll help prevent ring stick and wear. Cleans carbon and varnish. I use it in my snowmobiles also.
