I've found auto cancel indicators only auto cancel when you least expect it
on the other hand when you get used to having them you never remember to turn non cancelling ones off, then people think you're going to turn left and run over the top of you when you're going straight ahead. that was not a good day, especially as I was on my sisters NH80 Honda Lead scooter. serves me right I guess

Well turns out my indicator/running light idea won't work. Just not enough difference between the brightness for it to be a safe idea.

Still waiting on fork seals before I rebuild the front end.

I also have to check in with my mate from work about the intake flanges...

Working on a 2-1 system to replace the 2-2 on it now. Building it out of an old Suzuki M109R exhaust.

Done. Just need new joint gaskets and she will be set.

Worried about ground clearance of the lower pipe but we will see once it is back on 2 wheels.

They come with mini apes, I was not a fan.

Still waiting on fork seals before I pull the front end apart. Have the new brake pads.

Wait in on the battery and Intake flanges before I can get her on the road.

Pulled the lower fork legs off this morning. Took me a bit to remove the lumpy rust that once was the retainer rings. Old fork seals seam ok, but I have new ones and will use them. Need to buy something to replace the retainer rings with.
Painting the fork legs at the moment. Going to rebuild the calipers tomorrow. I am working late arvo shift most of this week so I have plenty of time to get stuff done during the day. Hopefully by the end of the week I will be able to take it for a test ride.

The blue spot calipers should have the same mounting, but needs an adapter at the bottom because of the leading fork, and the R6 rotors should work.

My 1000 appears to be the same setup as your bike, and the Seca wheel has the same bolt pattern, I just bolted on the R6 rotors, just not sure about spacing as my front end is apart.

Brake lines are completely blocked.
A bloke from work gave me the old lines off his GSXR so hopefully they will be long enough to use.

Found a hole in the front header causing the ticking noise in the video. No idea why there is a threaded hole there but a very short bolt fixed the problem.

Just waiting on a 1m front brake line and exhaust clamp gaskets to arrive.
I also need to fab a bracket to hold the front indicators. I will bolt it where the old brake line splitter was bolted.
