      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 .

Ready to give up.

I have a 2000 polaris 335 sportsman. I have relpace the air filter oil, spark plug, fuel filter and cleaned the carb. The problem is, you can creep up on full throttle, but if you give it any quick juice it boggs.. bad. You can feather the throttle and get her going. I have tried the choke and that does not seem to fix it. Any Ideas? Thanks..

Did you purchase it with this problem or has it come on recently? Could be something as simple as carb adjustments if indeed the carb has been thouroughly cleaned. It sounds like it's not getting enough fuel, so I'd look at the fuel line from the tank, gunk in the bottom of the tank blocking the line, or a plugged orifice in the carb. Did you do a full soak overnight on the carb or a spray job? Was there a worn or bent needle for the high speed jet?

Take a good hard look at lobes on camshaft. We spent alot of time, money rebuilding carb, fuel pump ect, only to look at cam for a second time and realize that was the problem. Specifically the inner lobes.

I say give up, but that's just me. I'd rather have a trusty machine rather than working on one all the time. If treated well a new machine can last a long time, and the payment plans are not too bad. I just bought a new Polaris for $2 a day minimum payment. I always pay double or more, but they are very affordable. Just depends on how important an ATV is, to you.

Did you ever think of the float in the carb, it very well could be getting stuck when the fuel is rushing in the bowl, and causeing the float to get cocked in the bowl.. Just my 2 cents...??????

I agree with heat checker. But does it back fire when you give it full throttle?

I just bought a 1995 Polaris 425 Magnum, the guy told me that his mechanic told him it was the carb because the wheeler had been sitting around in the garage for 2 years. I am not a mechanic and I am apparently pretty gullable.

Any how, turned out to be the cam shaft was toast. The exhaust lobe was wore out the worst. I have been told now that apparently Polaris is known for having this problem with some models. Well $500 or so later and it is running like a top.

Good luck.

3 things come to mind when I hear bad cams:

1) they made from bad material (Honda Rincons had a run of bad cams)

2) the machine didn't warm up long enough before it was ridden

3) it sat and idled too long

2 and 3 are due to not enough oil getting to the top end either from not being warm enough to flow (extreme cold) or not enough rpm (after warming up).

I would have to disagree to a point. At $2 a day thats over $700 a year! I dought you will spend $700 a year to keep this one running just fine. Just depends how much you dislike working on stuff though. I personally enjoy this type of stuff so I doesnt bother me to work on things.

Thank you all very much. I was doing some plowing this week end and could not get the problem again. Intermitent? I wounder now. One time when I got frusterated with the carb I drained the float, and the problem went away for a while, maybe it is the float?

Do you mean the float bowl? If so, it could be that you had a small amount of water in the bottom of the bowl and on hard accelleration it was sucked up to the main jet and causing the hesitation.

Drive it Drive it Drive it. Old/Bad gas and limited use will sometimes cause tweaky little problems like this, and I think the more you use something like this the better it will run for you. Best case scenario; there is no longer a problem!

    • Thanks for the replies. I am going to get a box of 1 3/4 #5's and a box of 1 3/4 #6's and pattern them against what I have been shooting, Hope to get that done when I go up to mow my trails this fall, whenever I can free up some time to go. I will post some results.
    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy. 
    • A guy can never have to many decoys!
    • Boar, in past years you have posted that you use dog food at some bait sites, with grease on it, how does it work? Thanks minky
    • Anyone having any action at their bear baits? I have one bear coming in.
    • It seems like summer just got here and already there are signs of it ending. In the north a few maple trees are just starting to show some fall colors. A pair of bucks were seen this week, one still in velvet antlers and the other had already shed. The late summer yellows of tansy, black-eyed Susans and goldenrod speak of shorter days to come.Continued rain showers in the last week, especially across the north, are keeping river systems at higher than normal levels for mid-August. Brown trout fishing continues to pick up on the Bois Brule River. The catfish bite is on on the Wisconsin River in central Wisconsin with anglers landing good number of channel catfish. Some walleye, smallmouth bass, catfish and drum are being caught in the Peshtigo and Menominee rivers. Anglers have had good success on both the Fox and Wolf rivers catching northern pike, walleye, catfish and panfish.On Green Bay, anglers fishing for walleye on the west shore from the mouth of the Pensaukee River to Oconto are finally getting on to fish, while along the east shore success was more mixed with about half the boats reporting harvesting a few walleye while others did not catch any. Anglers targeting smallmouth bass along Door County had success in water ranging from 4 to 20 feet. In Sturgeon Bay perch fishing has been pretty good with some anglers catching their 15 fish bag limit including some larger 12-inch perch. .
    • I prefer and shoot 1 3/4 oz of 6's which will whack anything out to 50-60 yards
