safari tank fuel lines

I also modded the fuel inlet on the carb so all the Safari litres get into the carb via gravity. It seems it actually holds about 38 l.

i recently test rode a DR650 with a 30 L safari tank, during the test ride the bike died. there was still some fuel in the tank but it couldnt get to the carb. i managed to sloch the fuel to one side and turn off the other side fuel tap and got the bike to fire and back to the shop. i have since purchased the bike and would like to know how you altered the fuel lines so all the fuel gets to the carb. the carb fuel inlet pipe is a steel pipe that is bent up the way, did you remove this pipe? i am no sure how it is inserted into the carb looks to be pressed and not removeable. how did you mod this pipe?
