      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 .

Sportsman 500 break issues

Recommended Posts

My breaks keep locking up. It sits for a long time since I use it mainly for ice fishing. I looked around to see if it was low on break fluid but I couldn't find where to check it... Any ideas?

Thanks

there should be a site-glass on the side of each of your resevoirs to check brake fluid level.

If it sits for a long time after ice fishing, it could be the rotors are rusting and have to be broke loose from the pads.

I know this is really obvious, but you didnt by mistake leave the parking brake on?

is there any debris or anything in any of the calipers?

if you ride it for a bit does it go away? Then when it sits does it come back?

i dont know if this helps or not but last year i had the same problem with my honda 4 tracks 300. easy remedy was there was no bevel edge on the leading edges of shoes, so i took a small metal file and put a bevel on the shoes. works just fine now because the edge of the shoes don't catch the drum unless i put the brakes on. Hope it helps. wasnt sure if you have rotors or drums since all ive ever owned is hondas.

Thanks for the tips, The parking break is not on ( I have done that before though...) The lever to engage the parking break is really hard to move though but again is not engaged. I'll pop the wheels off and check out the breaks.
