      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 .

Try cleaning your carb.

Sounds like your air screw; should be clean, straight, and only out about 2 turns (give or take depending on your atv). As was said; clean out your carb.

I don't know if it is what you are talking about, but my father has an old polaris 350, and the throtle is tempermental some times, it will not idle, we figured out that there is a switch in the throtle when you push the throtle a little we can hear the switch click, sometimes it will not idle, just kill, and push the throtle a little and it will run, but it does not always do it, sometimes it runs fine.

PS. ours is fun because the battery/starter are bad and we have to pull start it. try pushing in the throtle and pullstarting it. Reverse is even better, throttle, reverse override and then pull. tricky, but can be done alone.

sorry it may not be related at all.

That switch is the ETC. It prevents a stuck throttle. If your cables stretch after years of use this will need to be adjsuted and can cause throttle problems.

My thoughts exactally. My 07 did the same thing, and a quick check of the throttle free play (there should be none) told me I needed to adjust the cable. That is where I'd start if I was you. Quick, easy, and best of all, free.

Here is an update on my idle problem on my ATV . I looked at the carb and cleaned it but I didn't pull it out and take the bowl off just disconnected it and cleaned it. Put new gas in it and it seemed to run better when it was really warm. When I started it the next morning I had to keep choking it off and on to keep it idling or it would quit, even after a few minutes of running. I was told by a service tech to address the carb 1st but when I looked at a troublshooting manual it said the carb would be the least likely out of all the possibilities. Any more ideas?
