      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 .

Grizzly 660 owners I have a question for you........

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 2002 Grizzly 660 with 800 miles on it. When the 4 wheeler is in park or neutral you can give it gas and engage the clutch you can hear a "noise" coming from the belt/crankcase area. It doesnt sound like a super bad bearing or anything, just a noticable noise coming from in that area, I guess Im just asking to see if maybe this is normal or just a belt noise or something. Oh and is the transfer case area the same oil as the engine oil? Thanks in advance !!

Perfectly normal, the belt clutch is always engaged, the centrifugal clutch always the motor to idle. When in park or neutral and revving the engine, what you are hearing is the belt clutches working, allowing the belt to move up and down varying the ratio.

The transmission and engine use the same oil. It does have a front differential and rear gear box also, both having their own gear oil.

Have fun with your new wheeler!

Thank you for the reply.. I was thinking/hoping it was just that. My other 4 wheeler is a Polaris 500 HO and I dont notice that noise on it. But I know they arnt set up the same. Good to know about the engine oil too. Thanks Again
