      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 .

Honda Big Red 250 - Which oil to put in it?

Recommended Posts

The search function never returns any results but thought you guys would know.

It's a 4 stroke 250. Manual says 10w30 85 to zero degrees F. But was thinking of what would work best to make this thing start well this winter.

Thanks!

Cold weather = 2 quarts of Amsoil 0 weight ATV oil. You won't need it all, and it can be purchased locally at Red Rooster if you need it fast. Otherwise "the oilman" can ship it to you , probably for no more money.

Also check the "What weight oil" thread going on. "theoilman" explains what I use. I think that's what you'd want, too.

The AMSOIL preferred oil for almost all 4-stroke 4-wheelers is the 4-stroke PowerSports Oil 0W-40. Most Hondas have the engine and transmissions with separate sumps for the oils, so with the engine oil the wet-clutch question doesn't apply. If you want 10W-30 I would recommend the new 10W-30 MotorCycle Oil.
