Question Routing fuel line between jugs.

Anyone ever route the fuel line between the cylinders for a cleaner look when using Super G carb? Is this dangerous? Fuel line is braided stainless.

Ya I did so on my Sporty< Same line.
Ya could plastic shield it to keep it from getting ripped up if it's gonna touch .
Problem with those shielded lines is they fray and pick up dirt easily.
Not dangerous
New Chop is same side Petcock so it's a straight drop to carb

run it between mine. I use braided. Only downside is possible additional heat. Ah heck, there is all kinds of heat around my motor anyways! LOL

Running it between the jugs, wouldn't that pose a problem with vapor lock (the gas coming close to a boil)??

Good point, I've had that happen with an ATV. The saving grace here is the relatively open air nature of the system. If enclosed somehow, I think a definite problem would occur.

It would only vapor lock with a sealed tank. I believe most of the new caps are vented....correct?
