    Fuel line routing from gas tank

    Just installed triple pump and airbox update kit on my 95 slt750. My question is about the fuel lines coming from the tank sending unit. They seem to be pretty long and come out of the tank then all the way down to the bottom of the hull and back up to the fuel/water separator. Should I shorten these so it is a more direct route to the separator or does it matter? Also, the fuel return line could be shortened as well. This is how it was from when the motor was rebuilt.

    I meant to say the lines go down from the tank then up to the fuel shut-off.

    Also, the SLT doesn't have the rib in the hull to mount the triple pump so I used the bracket from the airbox update kit and just went right through the side of the hull.

    You can see the fuel return line dropping down before it goes up back up to the tank. Should I shorten it so it doesn't drop down? Just want to make sure my setup will not cause any problems with getting fuel. Thanks.

    Sorry brother, but you need a better camera. Or at least 1 with a flash..... Can hardly see your pics.

    If your fuel supply hoses seem too long, go ahead and shorten them. Just make sure you don't pull them so tight you kink them.

    As for the return hose, no problem with it's length as long as it doesn't get kinked either. Actually, some of us keep the return hose long in order to install a primer fitting when removing the choke.

    Might I suggest you install SS carriage bolts instead of the hex head bolts for the fuel pump? Less chance of getting hurt.

    That's weird cause the pics look fine on my computer. Would there be any negative of just leaving them how they are? As for the bolts for the fuel pump, I was going to get some plastic caps or something. Thanks.
