I only have one concern: do you think coolant would flow from bypass to T in hose 15 and go back through the radiators, out hose 16 to w/p? Or do you think it would maintain its flow from bypass - T - w/p? (I know thats mouth full)

Fluids will take the path of least resistance, so, no, it wouldn't do anything like that. While there could be a small amount of movement between the radiators, it's very much easier for the fluid to flow from the T straight down to the pump to fill the void created by the fluid being pumped up to the head. At worst, I would think you would have a "blended flow" condition, with maybe 30% or less flowing up into one radiator and out the other. Bear in mind that the bypass hose will be smaller already, too.

Thats pretty much what I was thinking also. Well it seems like an ideal setup for an FI bike. I guess I'll be the first to try it out on here and post up some results, assuming I can afford to do it soon. Thanks for the input.

I may have this thing ordered. I finally got a hold of the guy as I couldn't order off website. He said his sales liscense is expired. I'm supposed to have an invoice in my e-mail to send payment buy the end of the day. He said he'll ship it tomorrow or Monday so after I get it installed I'll post a thread on my thought, results, and feelings (which may not do anyone any good if getting the part is difficult).
