If the gas lin is actually touching a hot part of the engine, I would try to get one of those spring looking things to slide over the hose to keep it from actually touching the metal.
so you want to put metal against the the hot metal so the the heat proof rubber hose is not touching hot metal<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

Squeak, maybe I am wrong, but I couple of my bikes were set up like that.....you know, maybe it was to keep the kinks out,or maybe they were pre high temperature rubber. Heck, I DID think it was a good idea........
the metal clamp will conduct the heat almost as well as having the rubber againts the engine. it was most likely there to prevent rubbing (abrasion)
