If you're into over-engineering something, sure.  It'll be fine.  More than it needs to be.
Eh, spent too much time as a heavy structural fabricator ha, I over build everything. nice looking lashup on that

Interesting, what are the benefits of this oil mod?
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.

Motor back in frame. Button up from there. A little WD-40 shine on the frame, a hand rub on the tank. I'm going down to single disc on the front end...

Do a better job of getting oil to the top end. Plus, the plan is to eventually convert to an external filter.  I will tie into this system.

it would be prudent to have an anti drainback check ball valve in the outgoing oil line
another thing to look at would be tightening up the escape route for oil that makes it to the cam journals
you can pump lots of oil up there but if it too easily just escsapes duty it isnt doing much good
