Not sure if it is final or not. Will do some testing in that regard to see how it works or does not. That is the reason I kept the original mod.

Just to note:

This is exactly the same mod I had done on the boxer motor of my '05 Troyka, back in early '06. No sludge, no stagnant oil buildup inside the tubes, no problems in power, no need for changing either of the John Deere hoses out over heavy off-road and on-road use of the bike and high mileage at variable speeds. Essentially no problems noted with the use of the John Deere hoses on that rig at all, so far. Although each vehicle may offer different with the end results, I am sort of thinking that this mod on my Smartie won't be much different than it was on my Troyka. None the less, I will do the testing with real world driving and check to see how it's results work out or not. Just an experiment for me and I had the parts readily available, anyway.
