      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 .

Forgot to summerize...

Recommended Posts

I forgot/never got around to summerize my 2-stroke sleds(water cooled). Is it ok to just start them and let them idle for a few minutes every couple of weeks at this point? Or should I still summerize them seeing that it is almost August? Thanks.

Depending on where it's stored, I would put fogging oil in the cylinders(pull over a couple times slowly to lube) and leave it as is for now. This fall you'll probably want to remove the gas and clean the carbs.

Did you use a fuel stabilizer?

You can run them every couple weeks or fog.

You should grease the suspension, steering, and drive when its warm out then work the those points to their full limits.

as long as you run them once a month or so you should be fine I fogged mine in may and have not had to bother with going out to start it. if I did not fog it every off season I would start it and would want to go do grass drags!!

I did use fuel stabilizer, and keep in a heated garage. One of them needed to have the carbs cleaned in the fall even when summerized the last 2 years.

You may be ok, but I would pull the carbs and give them a good cleaning. It would sure be sad if you have some slime in them and end up with a burn down. A couple cans of carb cleaner and a a couple hours is cheap insurance against meeting Mr. Squeaky.

If you have not run it since March or April, and there has been unstabilized fuel in the carbs, it does not take long for green slime to form with the gasoline of today.
