Is it ok to route my fuel line like this? Acerbis 6.3 on KTM 530 (Pictures inside)

I have a big 6.3 Gallon Acerbis tank and am trying to figure out the best way to run my fuel like and keep it off the header pipe on my KTM 530. It would make for a bad day if it touched the pip and then burnt a hole in it. I have it routed through some Radiator hose to keep it up and out of the way of the header pipe but it does run along the cylinder head even though it's not really touching it. Will this work or is this some better way? I though about maybe buying a larger diameter hose and putting it over the fuel line as maybe a little insulation but wasn't sure if it was necessary or not. Opinions wanted...

section from the petcock to the radiator hose (?) seems fine. However the aft sections looks like it is touching the header. It look unnessarily low. Can you tighten it up or tie it up higher. I have a acerbis tank on my bike and the fuel line appears dangerously close to the header. I have run it this way (as have many others) for a couple of years without issue.
