      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 .

95 RXL pipe and silencer?

Recommended Posts

I have a 95 RXL that is in a dire need of a new pipe and silencer. Does anybody know if a pipe and silencer off a 95-96 XLT or 96 Ultra will work for this sled?

The part numbers are all different and I guess I wouldn't reccomend putting a pipe from one engine on another. The Ultra stuff is completly different, pipe and can. I would reccomend checking with some salvage places to see if you can find a set or consider looking for a set of used triple pipes. Nothing sounds finer than a 650 motor with triples on it! You can keep and eye out on e---b-a-y too, that always a great place to look. Good Luck

NAMA, thank you for your help and looking into that further for me. I actually have seen that pipe/silencer combo, but I am going to pass on it. I am looking to find something in a bit better condition, which I know is going to be tough. I have thought about going the triple pipe route, but that would also require a new chip for the efi, correct?

Did some quick research and that's correct, you would need to get a different chip. According to one post I seen, if you went with the Aeon pipes the chip is included free. The pipe and silecer that we looked at didn't look bad to me, I don't think you would be disappointed if you had someone media blast them and throw a new coat of paint on. I don't think your going to find a set in too much better condition, I don't think Polaris even offers them anymore as an oem replacement.I'll do some more checking and get back to you if I happen to run across a set. wink

I just read on SLP's site that you cannot put on triple pipes with a reverse kit, which the sled has. So, I guess that idea is out the door.

OOOOH, Jackpot! Go to the Minneapolis section of the list that Craig has and type in RXL. There's 4 whole complete running RXL's in there that are all priced under $1000. You could pick up a whole parts sled. One is a super nice 97' with triples and all the extra goodies. Maybe you could negotiate one of them down a little and have a whole other sled for parts or a back up on the cheap!

He may have modified the pipes by cutting and moving the stingers to fit around the reverse lever on the outside of the chaincase. Looked like he has 3 individual stingers coming out the bottom vs. having the 3 pipes going into a can. A person could always cut out part of the can to clear the reverse and weld patch back on afterwards. Most of the aftermarked cans are mostly hollow anyway so it wouldn't matter to cut it and make clearance. There's a thousand different ways to do it, it all depends how much work you want to put into it. With a little imagination and a welder you can make just about anything work and work well! I have a buddy that stuffed a 1200 triple w/ triple pipes into a Polaris 440 I.Q. race chassis so anythings possible!

    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
    • Final 2 minutes of lastnight’s game was pretty exciting. I agree, it’s going to take several more games for the team to really come together. But winning those types of games will make it happen faster!
    • So late last ice fishing season I was looking at underwater camera's and thought I narrowed it down to either a Marcum VS825SD or the Aqua-Vu HD700i.   Now I see Aqua-vu has a new model out this year the HD7i Pro.   Does any know what the differences are between the HD700i and the HD7i Pro ?    Usually I don't like to buy first year products as I like to see them get all the bugs worked out first.
