      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 .

06 Sportsman Belt ?

Recommended Posts

I have an 06 Sportsman 500. I have about 700 miles on it. How soon should I look forwad to replacing the belt on this thing? I know there are may variables that would factor into the belt condition, etc. Is this another item that I shoud add to the list of things to pack into my cargo box for trips? Does anyone have troubles with them going to #$!! on them while they are riding? Is there a certain age/mileage to look out for? Thanks!

i just replace them when they break. my sportsman has over 6,000 miles and ive only had to put 2 new belts on it(and i ride pretty hard). i would def have one along on trips. how you ride all depends on how long the belt will last. ive never had a belt just expold like on my snowmobile. it always just broke the top layer and made a slapping noise as it hit the cover so ive always been able to get it back home to change it.

They can last a long time. Important to use low range when going slow on technical trails, plowing etc. I have about 2,000 miles on mine. It is just fine. If you do want to carry a replacement be sure to use only the Polaris brand part. It's the only one that fits properly.

People have been getting 5000 miles out of their belts. I agree with Tyler and Hafnutz on carrying an extra.

I am usually careful about using low when I should, etc. I am glad to see that it should be a few thousand miles before I have to worry about it! I will buy a spare, anyway....cheap insurance! Thanks for the info!
