Underseat (up to 2008) fuel tank - fuel line routing

Iíve got a question for those fellow Berg owners of this period who are have the underseat aux fuel tank, as I have on my 2008 FE550.

While I am glad to have the almost 3L of extra fuel. The problem Iím facing is hose layout. I find the route from the tap to how Iíve plumbed into the fuel inlet not high enough to adequately feed fuel. It lacks head pressure to push fuel all the way from the right, down by the shock and then over to the left.

Anyone have pics of a fuel line layout thatís worked well for them?

Thanks.

if I recall it was fuel from right tap into transfer of extra tank, fuel tap out to a 2 into 1 with the left tap. the extra tank breather went all the way up the frame to the headstock and around the bars once.

at the gas station, I can't recall but I think I loosened the extra tank cap and put it in the normal tank and let the air hiss/vent out. as the top tank gets 3/4 full stop fuelling. then as the extra tank gets very full, close the cap at the last moment and lock in the fuel. then fill the normal tank the last bit.

PS; it's 2 litres. nearly 3 pints.

regards
