      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 .

Throttle will not MOVE!

Recommended Posts

First of all, thanks to all who put their input in because I am no mechanic! My 2001 Arctic Cat 500 throttle has locked up on me twice this year already in the cold weather. Basically, I go out and start it up and when I go to hit the throttle it doesn't budge at all. I am thinking my throttle cable is freezing up but have no idea what caused it or how to fix it. Am I on the right track here or am I way off. Thanks again for the information.

I think your on the right track. Moisture probibly got in there. IMO the best thing to do is replace the cable. But if you want, take the cable off bring it inside thaw out then pour isoprope down cable to rince then spray wd40 or any other lube to prevent corosion.

Just bringing it inside for a night might do the trick but if it doesnt then your back to taking it off again.

If its not hard to replace I would do just that. Sounds like even if you do get it dried out it will just do it again, again, and again. IMO I would just replace it and be done with it.

I had this happen on my lawn tractor that I'm going to use for ice fishing. I took the cable off and warm in up to thaw the ice, then used my air compressor to blow out all the water, then I sprayed it full of white lithium grease, no more problems so far. you could always try that. it's alot cheaper than a new cable. you just have to make sure that the grease gets in there so no more water can get in. I wouldn't use WD40, it can evaporate and then water can get in there again. just my thought.

Unless there is something wrong (cracked outer coating) with the current cable I can only imagine that a new cable will also have the same issue. Unless you can figure out the moisture is getting in the cable you are going to keep having the same issue on a new one.

I agree with thawing the cable, sending some isopropyl down the line and then some type of lubricant that will not be affected by the cold weather.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
