      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 .

Suzuki Riders... Where are you???

Recommended Posts

Okay, there seems to be a few posts about Polaris riders click here. Kawasaki riders click here....

Well here it is... SUZUKI RIDERS... CLICK HERE and tell us about your machine... smilesmile

I am a proud owner of a 1994 Suzuki 300 King Quad 4x4. I use it everyday on the farm, go roaming around with it, and use it for ice fishing. Great investment for what I use it for...

I guess I'll put in my info:

2005 Suzuki Kingquad 700 with 2400 miles of plowing,hunting,exploring,driveway dragging,firewood hauling,deer skinning and hanging, and once and awhile pleasure riding. So far so good, I haven't had to turn a wrench on it yet, and don't plan on it either.

05 Eiger Nothing fancy but it does the job. Bought it used in 06 came with Maxxiss Bighorns and wheels and a warn winch. Big horns are nice probly why it caught my eye to buy it.

06 Vinson 500 best machine I have ever owned. Dragged a large bull moose a mile down a trail and didn't even break a sweat. A friend of mine has a 2000 Vinson that has been ridden hard and it is still going strong.

07 Kingquad 700. Love it. Pulled some big tree stumps out of the revein. 60" moose plow made snow removal a breeze. I've come to the conclusion that it loves ice fishing wink.

We are here....I just posted yesterday about Suzuki outboards and how Suzuki is an under appreciated brand.

I ride a 2006 Kingquad 700. Great machine...fast...lightweight...sporty feel.

My Polaris buddies say..."wow..that is a fun sporty bike to ride"

Grizzly 660 buddies Holy Shatis...that thing is fast.

I too push tons of snow with my 60" county plow...what a blast.

I agree that I think that Suzuki is an under appreciated brand... Even though I have an older machine it is still a great running machine.

Ive looked at the new machines and the price is right for what you are getting I believe...

1995 250 Quadrunner. Maybe 250 miles. Works for me to drag deer and easily fits in the truck bed. Interested in a non-current year King Quad 400 though.

Last spring I traded in a 1997 300 King Quad - got twice the amount for it I was expecting and left the dealer with a 07' 700 King Quad -

I loved my 97' but love the 07' even more

Have riden other machines, but nothing compares to the King Quad.

Got me a '08 750 KQ AXI SE (below). I love it and would not trade it for any other!! Ok, maybe an '09... I plow a 1000' driveway w/it and can take it virtually anywhere.

    • Lotsa rib comps do that for overnites low 'n slow, if they're doing briquettes. Always worked for me.
    • What does use the minion method mean?
    • Folks  use the minion method in smokers with no issues.
    • I agree. Don't use kingsford unless you put it in after it has turned all white. There are chemicals on it to make it light easier. 
    • I saved about $200 by picking up a used one.  It was a clean unit, just a couple minor scratches on the side.  It's been flawless. I knew what I was looking for and when I found it I was there within hours.  That is the game when you're looking to save money on those generators. I've never seen a retail sale on them worth going out of the way for.  
    • Just make sure you get it going good first without fluid or make sure the fluid is burned off.   I tried charcoal in my electric smoker once and didn't get the fluid burned off enough before I put the snack sticks in and the taste of the lighter fluid soaked into the casing pretty good and rendered it inedible. 
    • Nah, not but hurt at all.  
    • Welcome to the forum.  Could you give us a little more details on what you would be jigging for in the Philippines? 
    • RRmawi, Welcome to the forums.  I don't have one and by no replies it looks like not many others do as well? Sounds like you mite have some corrosion or wear happening in the connections and controllers.  Did you try replacing the batteries in the remote already? You could try some dielectric grease on all the connections to see if it's a contact issue. Or some Electicric contact spray on the switch's.  If you got some water in the motor from a leaking seal that could also affect the current flow through the system as well. Good luck and let us know what you find out.
    • I've been using gas grills at home and at the camper for some time now.  I do really miss the Smokey flavor of charcoal but the speed of gas to get a dinner done and back out on the lake is nice. I do wrap some hickory up in tin foil to smoke on the gas grills when doing ribs or other longer cook meat though. Lately I have been wondering how wrapping up some kingsford charcoal in tin foil or trying some in the smoker to get that great charcoal flavor would work? Anyone else ever try it for smoking on a gas grill wrapped in tin foil or in a smoking tube or in a smoker instead of wood?
