the smaller fuel line(i believe the fuel return) has some play in it. You can actually move it forward and back where the fuel line clips on to the fuel tank(quarter inch or more). is this normal? the other fuel line next to doesn't move what so ever. here is a pic os the fuel line.

The connectors should be firmly connected to the fuel tank nipple. Are you talking about the heat shield covering the actual fuel line? Those connectors should not move if properly installed.
The line on the left side of the bike is the pressure line. If it was loose you would know it. It is maintained at 62lbs pressure. THe other line is indeed a return line and has no pressure at all.

The tubes are rigid plastic there may not be enough flexibility or room to bend them, the service manual recommends that you disconnect the lines at the TB/fuel rail first, then remove the other ends at the tank.

Be careful. I broke mine (top one in your pic) just because I was pushing it a little trying to clean dust under it. When the engine is on, the fuel pump will put pressure on it, so you will know if it cracks - you will see fuel squirts out. Easy to fix though, but lets hope it doesn't happen at the first time.
