      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 .

Recommended Posts

im looking at getting a set of itp mud lites xtr for my can am outty 500. the only thing is that i cant decide between 26s or 27s. fronts will be 9 wide and rears will be 11 wide. i will be putting a clutch kit in at the same time.

will i have good acelleration with the 27 or should i go with the 26s? half and half between trail riding and mudding

the clutch kit will help, but adding 27s on a 500 is going to rob you of a lot of power. I'd go with the 26s personally.

Plan on getting MUDDY! I have a 700 King Quad, and my buddy has the CanAm. we both have 26 ITP Mud Lights. When we go for a wet ride he is soaked in about 1 hr. Fenders dont catch any of the mud. He gets it all. You may have to add to your fenders to keep the mud of you. Now when you go where there are no trails, you have to make sure you dont rip them off. Good Luck

i will second that for the ice. what are your trail/riding habits. i would look into some highlifter mst tires. had some 26 on my 800 outlander and they would be my all around best tire for woods and slop riding. fender extenders would be recomended. get hung up just a lil with any tire that has some deep lugs with the outy and you will be soaked.

I put the extentions on my outy thought they'd look bad, but really turned out good, I use 26" terracross tires on a 14" rim, it did rob me a little on low end wheelies but still can,, just need to work at it a little more

Wish I knew how to upload a pic on here

This might be a silly Question, but I am sure it's the same as with a Truck. If you go with a larger tire then what it ws stocked with. Then don't you get inaccurate Speed and Distance readings on the Speedometer, odometer?

SO with taht, there must be a way to recalibrate as well?

not sure on the recalibrating the speedo on an ATV.

Larger tires will change it a little. ATV speedometers aren't that accurate to being with so I wouldn't worry about it IMO.

    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?
