Fuel hose: getting too hot and vapor locking

#1

I was curious if this could be a problem? I have a rubber fuel hose, coming out of the factory fuel petcock and running between the jugs, and going to the s&s carb? Could the fuel be getting too hot and vapor locking? Or will it be alright the way it is?
thanks

Rubber is an insulator. With good quality line, you should be okay.
