I would replace the y fitting with a brass T right above the carb inlet and solve that line kink issue.

Thanks for the Zip Ty info Indy. Did you just buy the knob or the whole petcock? Maybe the knob and cover since mine looks different. I did use a brass T fitting but on Clark's bike he had either turned the fuel inlet on the carb or pressed in a different one so that it points left toward the petcock.
All you need is the knob and it sells for $23. and remove the 2 screws on the acerbis petcock face and swap out the lever for the knob.

Thanks both of you for the info. I guess they must have changed the fitting on the carb after 04. I'll be calling Zip Ty tomarrow for that knob. Maybe I'll order one of their hot start fittings at the same time. It seems like another easily damaged part.
Yes I have had issues with the hot start plug in the first year, so I got the metal one from Zip Ty and no more issues.
