      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 .

Looking for more speed

Recommended Posts

I've got a 2004 honda rancher 350 4x4. I'd like to get a few more mph. Will adding the fwd disconnect kit give me a few more mph? What about taller tires? Can't afford a new machine right now. Thanks for any tips or tricks!

The engine is governed by rpm. The only way to go faster is to

A. overide the governor...

B. change gear ratio... (not available to my knowledge)

C. put on taller tires in the hope that the engine will be able to overcome the loss of ratio and still top out the governor.

D. Imagine you are going faster than you think. wink

What is the easiest, is to accept the limitation of the ATV and revel in the fact that the time you save not working on it is more seat time to enjoy.

Go with D. Like MacGyver said there is not many ways to gain speed on a utility machine. The warn 242 4x4 unlocker will make the machine feel a little more sporty but wont gain you much speed. I would recommend the unlocker to anyone with a full time 4x4 because it will make the machine easier and more comfortable to ride when 4x4 is not needed.

Any mod. you do is not going to give you the results you desire. You could do all of these and have an increase in speed but it would be negligible if you were on the dragstrip and running against stock machines you would probaby win (dependant on rider weight) by tenths or hundredths of a second. This is a utility quad don't waste your money live with it or save your pennies for a new unit.

Hate to say it but I think spending money to try and make this machine go faster is not worth it. Try and enjoy it for what it is until you got the $ to upgrade.

Look into a Dynatec CDI. It will change your timing curve and increase low end power and irt removes your rev limiter so you can gain a little top end. Add taller tires and you will get a few more MPH. I gained 8 MPH on my Brute Force. Be careful as it will also remove the rev limiter in reverse.
