Fuel line routing?

Anyone have a picture of how the fuel line is suppose to be routed?

I installed my pcv and no matter which way I place the connectors the fuel line doesn't route right and kinks.

Left it like so and when I throttle hard enough and let off the bike dies.

Pcv is updated with the 1.9 firmware and i'm running the full yoshi map.

Only thing done to the bike is...
Full yoshi.
Graves block off plates with pump still in place.
Servo elimimator.

your bike dies not because of the kink. it dies because of the map that you have.
the fuel line does look like a poor design, as it always wants to kink on the bend closest to the tank

It's got a kink near the fuel rail too which looks like line is suppose to follow along the frame after it comes out of the fuel rail.

So is there a different map I should run or is this considered normal?

i wouldnt worry about the kink if you can ride the bike at 12-13k RPM for a few seconds. ive had 4 zx10's and, if i remember, all of them have the same line routing and suggested kinks.

my current zx10 - 06 10R - also dies when you pull in the clutch form high RPM. i also have a PCIII, but havent messed with it yet, as this is how i bought it.

I can probably draw a picture. Didn't bring tools home from work to pull the tank again.

You make it sound so normal to have driveability issues after the PC install.

I can actually run to the end of the gear, clutch it and stay running but if I clutch it first and rev it that's when it happens mostly or more consistently.

sorry, what im trying to make sound normal is the kink. i dont have much experience with the PC, but it is NOT normal for the bike to stall like that.

From my understanding of how this works if the line is kinked and under that much demand of fuel the pump is forcing it through but on decel or throttle off the pump is almost just idle and with the kink it starves the motor.

Well that's how I explained it to myself in my head. :D

Might just tear this all down and try to route this again or buy s new line if the kink is set in.

Will try to re-do my pcv tomorrow prior to all the above though to make sure.

makes sense, except that pump is not throttle-dependent. it holds a constant line pressure.
