My understanding from the previous owner is that it was all on an actual "03ish to 05ish" generation R6. It has a mounting tab on the top of it that I don't even use, and I've never verified whether or not it would line up with a mounting point on the R6.
I have a 1.5'' riser setup with a Woodcraft clip-on kit, and I can tell you that the cables are pretty much at their limit without being rerouted.

Hope this helps!
I completely understand where you're coming from. I've been on this bike for nearly 7 years and 65,000 miles now, and have even had the head completely torn down on the workbench for preventative maintenance in the past year, so I can appreciate your goals of longevity; I share those...
Mine will actually be delivered today (early). Gonna order a new set of timing cover gaskets before I do the swap, though... nothing worse than a gasket coming apart upon disassembly and not having a new one ready just in case.
On a separate note, how do you think fueling relates to this timing...
Go with the thermostat.. it's cheap and will mostly cost you the time it takes to swap it out. As for the code, there is a way to put the cluster into a diagnostic mode that will reveal what code it's throwing. Wouldn't surprise me if it was cooling system related. I don't recall exactly how to...
I've heard good things about both the Delkivic system as well as the Black Widow system. Both are half the cost of Two Bros and M4, but equal in quality from what I've seen. Also, bear in mind that my Yoshi is a slip-on installed onto an R6 header... not much in the way of a "system" or "kit" ;)
