With the take off from the CS would it be more efficient to run a hydraulic pump to power the front wheel instead of mechanical? More revs = more flow, still taking out the gearing effect..... Just putting it our there.

That would make the kit highly portable, because hoses can be routed around any convoluted frame.
So :
- sprocket (sourced from the output shaft) drives hydraulic pump,
- hydraulic hoses go to hydraulic motor,
- hydraulic motor drives steering head one-way clutch,
- one-way clutch drives front gears

That in fact places us right at the meeting point of the Yamaha technology and the Christini way of doing things.
