      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 .

Yamaha Phazers

Recommended Posts

Anybody riding one? I'm looking at picking up two and just want some real experiences with them before I make the move. I'm going to trade in an XC500 and a SuperSport 550 on them. They are giving me an OK deal on the two Phazers since they are both non-current sleds. Both are '07s.

I'm 190 pounds and my 11 son will ride the other along with my wife.

I have a phazer mtx mountain 144 track For sale 5,000$ 1000 miles. great on gas no adding oil.just change the oil every year. Sell you sleds on your own you will get more money. The 121 phazers will be great for the family no too fast, but fast enough. there is some low milage used phazers out there for a good price.

Mnuser john dee is a great guy.......

My father in law has a Phazer MTN lite and I like the sled a lot. It has a good rider position which is big to me. It did seem a little tippy if you ride twisties fairly hard. He added the regular Phazer front end (wider) for flat land riding around MN, but swaps it out for the mountains. It's a little heavier but that didn't seem to bother metoo much. I liked the backshift it had out of the box....that was pretty cool. I have only riden it a couple times so not a ton of seat time. I would definitely consider one of the newer Nitro FX's.....mainly because of the HP. The first time I heard it run I thought I was riding a 4 wheeler.....that was pretty different on a sled.

He also has an 04' M7, 05' F6 EXT, and an 08' Crossfire 8. I like the seating position more on the Phazer than the cats. The cats still seem to have a bit of a sit down/back vs the rider up which I really like.

I am riding a 06' Gade right now and don't think I would want anything different.....besides a new XP!!!

    • Lotsa rib comps do that for overnites low 'n slow, if they're doing briquettes. Always worked for me.
    • What does use the minion method mean?
    • Folks  use the minion method in smokers with no issues.
    • I agree. Don't use kingsford unless you put it in after it has turned all white. There are chemicals on it to make it light easier. 
    • I saved about $200 by picking up a used one.  It was a clean unit, just a couple minor scratches on the side.  It's been flawless. I knew what I was looking for and when I found it I was there within hours.  That is the game when you're looking to save money on those generators. I've never seen a retail sale on them worth going out of the way for.  
    • Just make sure you get it going good first without fluid or make sure the fluid is burned off.   I tried charcoal in my electric smoker once and didn't get the fluid burned off enough before I put the snack sticks in and the taste of the lighter fluid soaked into the casing pretty good and rendered it inedible. 
    • Nah, not but hurt at all.  
    • Welcome to the forum.  Could you give us a little more details on what you would be jigging for in the Philippines? 
    • RRmawi, Welcome to the forums.  I don't have one and by no replies it looks like not many others do as well? Sounds like you mite have some corrosion or wear happening in the connections and controllers.  Did you try replacing the batteries in the remote already? You could try some dielectric grease on all the connections to see if it's a contact issue. Or some Electicric contact spray on the switch's.  If you got some water in the motor from a leaking seal that could also affect the current flow through the system as well. Good luck and let us know what you find out.
    • I've been using gas grills at home and at the camper for some time now.  I do really miss the Smokey flavor of charcoal but the speed of gas to get a dinner done and back out on the lake is nice. I do wrap some hickory up in tin foil to smoke on the gas grills when doing ribs or other longer cook meat though. Lately I have been wondering how wrapping up some kingsford charcoal in tin foil or trying some in the smoker to get that great charcoal flavor would work? Anyone else ever try it for smoking on a gas grill wrapped in tin foil or in a smoking tube or in a smoker instead of wood?
