      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 .

2007 Grizzly?

Recommended Posts

I have a 07 660 Yamaha Grizzly. I was talking to my cousin a few weeks ago about how I never had a problem starting it in the cold. I use it ice fishing and keep it outside at the cabin during the winter and it has always fired right up. Well, we were having that conversation on our way back from the morning hunt and I decided to start it up when we got back. It would turn over a few times then make a clicking noise like the battery is bad. I checked the lights and the aftermarket lights and they are as bright as can be. I just want someone's opinion before I go out and buy a new battery only to find that isn't the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Sounds like a bad connection maybe.

Clean up the terminals and re-tighten the connectors.

Checking the fluid level and charging the battery might be a good idea also.

Check the connections on the battery too. I had one work itself loose a tad so it wasn't charging/starting like it should because it wasn't making ideal contact. My battery is on the charger right now. smile

Thanks guys, I am going to charge it up and try that. What I don't understand is why the lights are still really bright.

Thanks Scott, I keep realizing that everytime I talk about something positive, the negative happens almost immediately.

Have you ever tried to pull the starter rope to start it? If so, you'll understand why the starter solenoid is chattering and can't turn it over with bad connections or a dieing battery.

It's a beast to hand start, if not impossible....especially if the engine is cold. The lights will probably light up fine as they don't pull the current like the starter does trying to turn over that big single.

Pull it over with the recoil! Ha Ha Ha! I'm 6'3'' 265 and it is impossible to pull over! I want to know what Yamaha was talking about when they began using their automatic decompression. IMO, the recoil is more frustrating than the bad battery.

i have pull started the 660 a few times. the key is to get the piston to the bottom and then pull. sissy's definately need not try. pull start has saved my a$$ a few times

I had no issues pull starting the 2003 Grizzly I owned, although I never needed to use it I did try it a few times. Better to have a backup recoil than nothing at all.

I'd rather have nothing at all than the recoil on mine. It is almost impossible to pull over. Yes it can be done, but after 1 or 2 pulls, I'd rather let it sit than keep pulling!
