That would make the kit highly portable, because hoses can be routed around any convoluted frame.
- 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.
