Line and Length
I was practicing my killer leg-breaks today. Most deliveries were going down the leg side though. I was playing with tape ball on the street. Any tips on how to improve my line?

practice, practice, practice, try putting different objects down eg.
a cone and hit them, leg spin is a hard trade to grasp.

Can't offer much more detailed advice than keep practicing, like Ellipsism said. Video of your bowling would help though, there might be some things you could change with your action that will improve your accuracy.
Too many of my leg breaks used to land too far outside off stump and it wasn't until I stumbled across a Stuart MacGill video during a late night binge of youtube bowling technique videos that I realised my back foot wasn't aligned correctly. It was a really tiny thing that ended up making quite a big difference.

its all about whether u r open chested or closed chested. so a video would help
try to pivot the front foot and hips as u come through your action, around towards slips.
getting through ur action means that as u come into bowl and ur front foot lands ur body is facing square leg position and as u bowl and follow through your body is facing point
If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you always got #improve
