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.

Just finished installing and bleeding the brakes, and wouldn't you know it I got some on the front rim. Going to have to respray a portion of it. Thinking of painting the silver parts of the tank and rear fender while I am at it.

Just changed the fork oil and added the 10psi. I stepped up to 15w from the recommended 10w as I am 105kg and from all accounts 10w would be to soft.

Lucky for me I had a friend who had a 17mm hex key, I would have been stuffed otherwise.

Took her for a shake down ride yesterday, I need to make a bung to replace that o2 sensor on the rear pipe as it contacted with the ground. I expected that at least I know where the low point is.

Also forgot I had to wire in the front brake switch before I put the headlight back on. I will have to buy some mini blade terminals before I can wire it on.

Made a bracket out of alloy bar for the front indicators to mount to, not great looking but there will be a tool roll to mount and cover it yet.
