    Ignore it and ride it. There will be no stumbling, coughing, stalling or hesitation. I imagine this 'bubble' forms in most if not all fuel lines at some point, but most fuel lines are black, rubber and therefore can't be seen. The bubble you see does not impede fuel flow; the fuel simply flows around it, and at some point the bubble will slowly migrate to the fuel/carb bowl, quickly followed by more fuel. I have run this set-up for over a year and a half, and have never had a fuel starvation issue even at extended freeway trips at or over 75mph.

    Thanks! It didn't seem to affect it but I haven't had a chance to get it out on the road yet. Plus I wanted to address it if it was an issue.

    Now just need the weather to cooperate...

    I guess I'll do that too. I still would like to know what that little line is for.

    My didn't come with a T or Y and neither did a my buddies.

    yeah, I would have paid Acerbis $10 for one so I didn't have to rummage around home depot looking for one.

    That second line is for the vaccume operated peacock. Basicly an auto on off for your peacock. It has nothing to do with the choke. Cap off the nub at the carb.

    The acerbis tank should come with the T. But it seems like they have not included them in the packaging in the last few years. You can call acerbis and they will send one to you for free. It is better however to get a brass one. Home depot does not carry then for some reason. I found mine at Napa.
