      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 .

Electrical Issue with Sportsman 400

Recommended Posts

I was out plowing snow for about 1 1/2 hrs today with my 2005 Sportsman 400. All of the sudden with no warning the engine quits and the LED display goes blank. I turned the key off and back on nothing. I check a few wires, including the battery connections. Nothing. Anybody have any ideas?

I did put a lock and ride windshield on a few weeks ago and re-zip-tied the cables back onto the handlebars. Maybe I pulled them a little too tight. I'll go check that now.

Thanks,

MJ

That's what it was. However, I think I burned my high beam bulb out. (I'd heard that can happen with electrical issues. Is that true?) Everything else works but the high beam.

Thanks,

I wouldn't rule it out.

One other thing to note is that on the SP models, I think yours included, the 4x4 system is wired through the headlight pod. I know it sounds odd, but if the bulb is burned out, you might not have 4 wheel drive.

This happened on my '00 SP500. Burned out light, no 4x4. Replace bulb, 4x4 worked again.

My 4x4 is working and looking through the lens, the bulb looks good. Guess it'd be best to pull the lens off to take a closer look. Thanks for the information.
