On mine it comes up close to the saddle piller tube. It touches the air filter rubber connector. Then gently bends to the rocker box. I'll see if I can get some pictures later when I'm home.

 You want to 'ben'  it and GB has a 'piller'  tube......spell correct is crap and getting worse...
 I personally don't think it matters a crap how it runs so long as the oil gets there....I have a flexible rubber tube that runs up the frame tube somewhere behind the oil tank and then makes it's way to the rockers

I'm sure somebody will come up with something more relative for your plunger but here's a couple of photos of mine . . . may help

. . . but . . . it's the (more sophisticated   *whistle* ) swing arm model with rubber connector.

 Well yeah I guess I am, but for everyone's benefit I did credit it to spell-uncheck....I needed to edit fairly much every word of my post so it could be read...done on the dumbarse phone..... *conf*

 ...For the record, in work situations I've been bombarded with " The standard you walk past is the standard you accept"...initially I thought 'what a crockof ', but over time I realize it's very true.......
