Don't worry about there being an air pocket in the high spot of the line. I know it looks crazy like you'd need to bleed the air out or something but it works just fine.

I tried routing that line every which way and had no luck clearing the air pockets. Then it hit me, the answer was right there all the time. I just bought a solid black rubber fuel line. I didn't see anymore air pockets
Seriously though, I have never had a problem with the gas flow. I run it back of engine over the intake. I will force itself into the carb when the bike is in motion. Laws of physics I guess. But I wouldn't know how, I was a communications major in college.

I have read posts here where guys w/ IMS tanks melted fuel lines on high/tight headers so be careful when you route your fuel line, especially if you have an aftermarket header. You may try zip tying it to head stay to keep it up high.
When I installed IMS on my 426 I went ahead and put a Russel in-line filter since there is now all kinds of room for it what with fuel line going across bike. Filter rests against head stay and carb. Side benefit is it holds fuel line up high and away from my PC T4 header.
