      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 .

2004 Sportsman runs on one cylinder when cold

Recommended Posts

Any Ideas? My 2004 Polaris Sportsman 700 only runs on one cylinder when it is REALLY cold. I had it up to LOTW last weekend and when I went to start it, it runs rough and doesn’t have much power. Well after driving it for 5 - 10 minutes it warmed up? enough and started firing on both and I had full power and it worked fine.

Has this happened to anyone else?

You would first have to isolate the problem as to whether it's electrical or fuel. If it is possible, check for spark at the plug when it is acting up. If you have spark, then you more than likely have a jet in one of the carbs that may have a little crud in it. When an engine is cold, it requires a little more fuel until it warms up, after your warms up, it is pulling just enough fuel to run better. Maybe the atv guys could give you a little more to go on, but I'm just basing this on simple mechanics.

Does that unit have two carbs? If it does I would guess you had some condensation freeze up in the one carb and when it warmed up it started flowing again. A little ISO-Propyl would cure it if there is moisture in there. When we ride sleds out west we always make sure to fill the tank at night so there is no room for condensation as the sled cools over night, this makes it harder for water to get in the fuel supply. If you don't have seperate carbs, I don't know why you'd have this problem if it isn't electrical...

Only problem is whem it acts up it is below 0 and more likely way below 0 - makes it tough to wrench on things - plus the spark plugs are buried under everthing - I don't know how you mechanics do it!
