      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 .

Help on chrome cleaner

Recommended Posts

Just got home from a week long ride with my wife. After putting on 1350 miles, mostly sunshine but had some rain, I noticed that I have a hole melted in the leg of my rain suit. Yep, it got close and melted on the heat sheild of my exhaust. Now I have an area about 1" wide by 3" long, nice shade of brownish black. Well stopped at a HD dealer and asked what would take it off, they said to use Road Rub. Bought a stick, used it per directions and it didn't work. So I am trying to find something to remove melted rain suit on chrome. Anyone have any other ideas??

get some of the super fine steel wool, rub lightly not always in the same direction, and add some chrome polish to it. I promise it works and no scratching unless you rub hard and for a long time. I am a service manager at a cycle dealership and use this daily on bikes that come through our shop. Take your time and you will be amazed what you can remove.

Used a 3M scratch pad, goog gone, and HD bug off plus 1 1/2 hours of rubbing to remove melted frogg togg rains suit from my heat sheild. Starting to think about about some new Vance and Hines during all that rubbing. Got it off but boy what a @#$%& job!

Try using easy off oven clener. My wifes heal of her boot melted on my exhaust. I sprayed easy off on it let and let it sit over night and it rubbed right off.

Well guys thanks for the tips. But I have finally accepted defeat. I am thinking a new set of pipes are going to be in order here. I tried, road rub, from the local dealer, steel wool with polish cleaner and finally the oven cleaner. My wife thought I was nuts when I asked her if we had any and was going to use it on the bike. After numerous hours of rubbing the melted material is still there.

Have you tried a razor blade ? I had a similar problem a few years back , and I used a razor blade and it worked great.
