Just moved my gas tank forward on my bike Now the fuel filter is sideways. Will it work like this? I’m just wondering if it’s going to have an air pocket trapped in it.

You can also just use a zip tie around the top horizontal tube and snag and snug up the longer piece of fuel line to give your filter a steeper angle if its horizontal position poses any fuel feed problems...Quick and easy with no need to cut or shorten the fuel line, just a little lift up...lol.
 
I find that air trapped in the filter can cause air locking or at least fuel starvation. This has happened on mine a couple times. I usually suck into the tank a couple times and that gets rid of the trapped air.
