      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 .

2000 yamaha 650 classic hard to start/flooding/bad gas lines

Recommended Posts

So i just bought this motorcycle from my buddy and i have already encountered problems (good grief) anyways its cold blooded as heck, and it acts like its flooded even if it sits overnight with the gas shut off. also the gas lines are leaking, bad enough that i can see it in little drops around the timing screws(i think) anyways can this all be attributed to a carb problem or do i have more than i bargained for here. I havent talked to a yamaha dealer yet but that is soon to come. imthinking go through the carburater and new gas lines will be the route to take, but not 100% sure. anyone else have any ideas??

It sounds to me like you have a partially plugged pilot jet. Did the bike sit without being run for awhile? Chances are it may have had ethanol blended fuel, what goes bad fast. V star 650 is a super dependable bike, I am sure a carb clean and new fuel lines and it will be fine.

If your lines are leaking, the bike is sucking in to much air. Replace all the lines and get the carbs cleaned to make sure there isn't any pieces of old gas line stuck in them..

I would also suggest checking the needle valves to make sure they aren't stuck and whether or not the floats float. Also would be good to make sure they are floating at the correct level. If you still have a gas leak when the gas is shut off it may be a good idea to look at the petcock and gaskets inside it. The carb kits and petcock refurb kits are widely available on the internet.
