      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 .

Polaris indy 500

Recommended Posts

my son picked up a 92 indy 500 to use this winter. I charged the battery and was hooking it up, without the key even in it, there is a bussing noise from the front of the motor. thought maybe electronic primer, but none of the positions on the switch may a difference. perhaps a short somewhere? any ideas? thanks

Is it a fuel injected model? If so, not to worry----when you connect the battery, you are also energizing the computer, and the fuel pump will load the rail. The buzzing sound quits as soon as the fump has built pressure. BTW, when you are starting this machine, pull the rope once, and wait for the buzzing soud to stop. then pull the rope once more and you are running.

Hope this helps.

When fully warmed up, EFI starts on first pull. When started cold, that is the coolest thing about EFI. It starts on the second pull no mater what. Carbs on the other hand are a differnt story. grin.gif

Back then what Polaris did to that sled with the hood pin stripe and coloring made it seem like they were targeting girls. Also I remember my buddies refering to the 500 as a Grandpa sled. I do remember they were good over all sleds.

Back then, I was into Yamaha. Now I have sank into the relms of Arctic Cat. They have been great sleds, but the reason I have them is because of the great deals I got on them.

Back then hot pink and neon green and such were pretty popular colors. If can think back to the hot pink air nets for tailgates, hot pink wipers for your truck and all the other things manufactures were sticking it on back then, I think Polaris was just trying to cash in on what was popular then. Lets not even start talking about the colors and graphic packages that AC has come up with. I always did want to be a fighter plane pilot and AC gave me the chance to have a sled that looked just like one, I passed. I think every brand has tried some questionable graphics and colors to pull people in. As far as the 500 being a grandpa's sled...maybe now they are but back in the early 90's the 500 was one of the most popular sleds around.

Early 90s, it was definitely the Indy 650 up against the Wildcat 700. It was all about the big triples.

Then it was the Storm & Thundercat.

Ditch Pickle green is not such a bad color. grin.gif

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!
