  1. Sorry, I missed the Lunges comment. Another good workout is Bosu-Ball squats. Though I work out in a gym I bought a Bosu-Ball for additional home workouts. The exercise not only works the legs but it strengthens the core and the back. I finish my leg workouts with 4-5 sets. By then your body is so fatigued you don't need anything more than your own body weight. http://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fitness/archive/2016/09/30/bosu-ball-squats.aspx
  2. Try lunges, both forward and back. Lunges work the same muscles as squats.

    Fuel Pump issue?

    Tim thank you very much for the offer. I spent about an hour cleaning all the components of the pump assembly and it cleaned up quite well. I checked to make sure the pump worked and then reassembled everything. I had previously emptied all the gas from the tank so I put fresh fuel in it and it fired right up, coughed and sputtered a bit at first and now its running smooth. Thanks for all the guidance and advice. Another couple of hour project that I turned into a 3 days worth of work.

    Fuel Pump issue?

    Here are some photos taken through the assembly opening. Inside of tank doesn't look that bad. Thanks for the offer Tim. I sent you a PM.

    Fuel Pump issue?

    What is the best way to clean that stuff off those components? Any particular chemical I should use? Is there a way to clean the inside of the tank? We always try to use Chevron 91 octane in our bikes.

    Fuel Pump issue?

    I just took the pump assembly out and this is what I see in the bottom. What is all what appears to be twisted wire coil in the bottom? As you can see there is a lot of corrosion/crap in the housing.

    Fuel Pump issue?

    I have found the fuel pump on Amazon for $23.40 https://www.amazon.com/Caltric-INTANK-HONDA-CBR1100-CBR1100XX/dp/B00JE8U80Q%3FSubscriptionId%3DAKIAJJY2YKHHLJKYIBNA%26tag%3Dslk03b1-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB00JE8U80Q or I can by the complete unit for over $400.00 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Petrol-pump-Fuel-pump-Honda-CBR1100XX-SC35-YR-99-00-New/262747548814?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D41376%26meid%3D9b17f94f06354bd293b35233c5118c85%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D161798796099 Is there any reason why I should buy more than just the fuel pump and the filter?

    Fuel Pump issue?

    I've got power to the fuel pump connector so it looks like its the pump. Thank you all for your responses and thank you Joe for your guidance on this. You sure made it simple for me.

    Fuel Pump issue?

    The fuse was good and I could feel/hear the "click" in the fuel relay switch as I clicked the orange on/off switch.

    Fuel Pump issue?

    When I try to start Jackie's 2001 XX the fuel pump does not engage. When I hit the start button the engine cranks but does not start. I do not hear the fuel pump engage when I first turn on the ignition. The PGM-FI light comes on as do all the other dash lights when I first turn on the ignition but then it turns back off, the only lights that remain illuminated are the oil light and the neutral light. In the service manual there are a number of scenarios all tied to how many times the PGM-FI light blinks. As I stated earlier, the light comes on when the key is turned on, as do all other dash lights and then it goes off, as do many of the other dash lights. Any suggestions as to where to go from here?

    Dear Zero

    Oh you whiny little bitch!! Or as the Jason Statham's character in the movie "Spy" would say: "You are such a little cunt!" And this is just another example of your "christian" faith reflected in your actions and words. Again being judgmental towards our President who reflected his faith in song. It is not sarcastic if it is what I believe.

    Well that was easy enough. When you apologize, will you get on your knees for me?

    Dear Zero

    Shouldn't that have been prefaced with; AFAIKBZITE? AFAIKBZITE that statement sure sounds judgmental as well as pretentious. But then isn't that the definition of most "christians". And I am "positive" I don't agree with you when it comes to religion.

    Dear Zero

    I'd like to know what mental contortions you have to make to not understand the meaning of And by positive I'm guessing that means agreeing with you. AFAIKBZITE
