Kinked fuel line GSX-R 1000 K9

I have a badly kinked fuel line which has been manifesting as big time hesitation at 10,000 rpm. Does anyone know of a UK based after market supplier. I would like a better quality line to prevent the problem repeating in the future.
Thanks

you can cut the plastic hose off the fittings and get rubber fuel injection line rated for pressure, then use clamps on the line otherwise just buy a replacement one

I've got no idea. It seems to be quite a common problem when a gixxer has a performance related problem at high rpm.

you have to be very careful when putting the tank back down esp. with pc or bazzaz wiring under it also. most people are not

I have just tried the fuel line from my wife's 750 K8 and the bike runs perfect. The line also looks to be shaped better for fitting under the tank.
Thanks for help Jason.
