another K75 starting problem

I just got my 1986 K75c back together after a couple of years waiting to get fixed. I had it fixed including a new fuel pump, screen and filter. Took the starter apart, it was barely turning over and she turnes over great now. I had it running fine enough to take it for a warmup run to change the oil and parked it. After putting the oil back in she will fire off but won't keep running. I pulled the fuel line off the bike and it was full of fuel so I don't think that was the problem. Any ideas? I noticed there is one line that I've replaced on my bike a number of times that forms a "Z" from the back of the engine to somewhere else on the right side. I's about 3" long and I forget what it's called. I plan oin ordering one.

Re: another K75 starting problem

Mystery solved. I pulled the gas cap off this morning and saw the hose from the pump going to the filter was off. The clamp had slid off the hose and was tight on the pump so it looks like I tightened the clamp more on the pump and not on the hose.
