Default Re: fuel line up against spark plug

What about going to the auto parts store and buying some silicon tubing to go over your fuel line? The stock fuel lines normally end up cracking from sun exposure anyways. What I did for my fuel line was use black rubber fuel line for a car, then put corrugated wire loom over that, it gives it a nice look and protects it as well. The wire loom I bought at Wal Mart it was about 3$ for 6 feet of it. Here is a picture of what I am talking about.

I think you can do a combination of things to make it safe(r).

WIRE/PLUG: A short plug may help with the routing. Use a high quality silicone wire and boot. Sleeving it with the purpose made woven glass is a good idea. I have used these sleeves on turbo cars, you can get them at speed shops/catalogs.

FUEL LINE: Use the best fuel line you can buy, then use the idea above - slip it into the next size hose that will fit.
