      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 .

I just picked up a 1983 honda big red 200 it doesnt have reverse but the thing is like brand new it only has about 35-40 hours on it and it runs awsome. it needs new tires what would you guys recomend for it? I want to put ice studs in it for fishing this winter. I picked up 300 studs at a garage sale this summer.

Skitter, That thing is in GREAT condition. I've had to do some serious cleaning/repairing/tweaking to get mine in the shape it's in, which is a far cry from your yellow monster. Oh yeah, mine is sky blue. I'd be first in line if you ever do want to sell it!

As long as your reading, have you been able to find a carb rebuild kit for it? Mine is leaking gas from the overflow tube (I'm assuming it's the float valve) and I've just gone to turning the gas off at the petcock to stop it. Any thoughts? I read somewhere that a Timberwolf 250 4-wheeler has the same carb, but I've never been able to confirm it.

I had a Big Red like that. Wish I still had it. Brother had one of those Yamaha's and they really pop easy wheelies, SkitterPopper. Be careful with a load across the rear (passenger, deer, etc).

Gosh I love hearing Dave say he wishes he still had a Honda. I'll never get tired of hearing that wink

We have quite a collection of three wheelers up at the cabin. Starting with a 90, a 110, a 125, a 185, a 200 S and an 85 Big Red (shaft with reverse) Only one isnt usable, the 110 broke a drive chain and it wrapped around the front sproket and broke the engine case. I just took it for the parts.

I have a BIG RED 250 also, but how many of you have a snow plow for one? I think its pretty rare. I don't know if the guy I bought it from made it or what. Worked pretty well. The Ol'Red needs a little work but I've loved it for the past 10 years. I just pulled the trigger on an 08 Sportsman

Just curious if anybody would be willing to measure the length of their big red, I was thinking of picking one up for ice fishing depending on if my trailer will fit that and the shack in it

I have a 1984 Honda 200M. The thing runs like a top and has gone on many 4 wheeler trips in the past few years. That thing has seen stuff that makes 4 wheelers nervous. Solid machine and a great first ice vehicle.

    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon.
