When you go with a thermospyn system, is it ok to have the lines going to rad with curves in them or are they supposed to be as straight as possible, if you have an application where the lines arent perfectly straight-is that going to effect the process of cooling, etc?

Well I use a return line on a 350 WCH from my Goldwing rad that swoops aroung the outside by the exhaust and into the return side of the WCH. I would say its 3.5 ' long.

The HOT side goes straight up and in like a shallow curve. Hot goes to top of radiator.

You want to avoid sharp curves that may cause restriction or hose kinking.

I'm sure the other guys on here can give details for ya as well.

Curves

Curves are fine. It is best if there are no spots lower or higher than the ends.

I put an 195* thermostat in my head and a BMW heater pump and its one of the beter things I have done to bring life to my kart.  Livewires OLD style of head was taking me 1/2hrs before the kart woke up.  The thermostat wakes up the motor up in 5~10 min of riding when the motor is cold and is stable at 200~235* depending on the type of riding.  With out the pump and thermostat I would not chance with the Yamaha yz250 rad.  Its too small for thermo siphon.  My rad has 2-speed fans for cooling (4each) and a two step thermo switch for cooling control.  Low is 220* and high is 240* for the fans.

I too love the water cooled head.  I melted my last motor due to runaway head temps hill climbing in 60* temps.  Head temp was climbing past 500* when it melted but would left the front tires off the ground climbing hills with head temps in the 250*~350* range.
