Gab instructed to get closer to 5 liters. I will continue, possibly today.
 
About the system. No, just mating the Gen2 headers with the Akra Gen1 2-2 system (this is given in the first or second post Tongue). Checking also if a proper chain guide can be done at the same time to protect the exhaust. Until now I have used jubilee clips and rubber.
 
Btw. What material are those Gen1 Akra 2-2 systems?

OK. Now it is some 4,6 - 4,7 liters and oil tank close to max. Opened the rear valve cover where I saw the buckets and cams having a happy day swimming in an oil bath.

That'll do.

Seems like a bit to much i have a bit left over from 4l can. know you have filled galorys and coolers. keep an eye on breather as it warms up think it will possibly overflow.

Yeah, need to follow the oil level and probably best to unplug the breather from the airbox.

PCIII connection.

I did it this way:

Cut the middle wire on the TPS and soldered connectors to both ends. To the other connector I soldered and extra wire with a connector, which I then connect to the PCIII grey wire.

So, in case I want Gabro to make me one more chip with the PCIII map (very likely) I can disconnect the Commander easily and reconnect should a need arise, like further modifications.

Pipework done:
 
Front downpipe. Shortened in two places as you can see from the welds. The welder used the original small outlets both in rear and front and welded that to the Gen2 bit taken out from the Gen2 downpipes.


Front outlet. Done in an angle straight away.


Rear downpipe and collector:


Rear outlet:




What was used from the Gen2 pipes, or in this case, what was left out:

The interesting bit. The collector is sitting lower than it was before (maybe 15-20 mm). The clearance to the linkage is a lot more as well as to the chain. I still put the lazy man solution to protect the pipe from the chain just in case.

Also, the last picture shows that the sidestand is just short of the up position. Not a problem but I'll see what happens when I start to put the lower fairing in place. Perhaps a good idea to get some heat insulation.
