Finally made my breakout cable, and got the following results:
Pin Voltages Dir Name Comment 1 0.0v Out ENC_A Encoder A Output 2 0.0v Out ENC_B Encoder B Output 3 0.0v Gnd GND Ground 4 1.6v In CYM Ink Control 5 0.0v / 0.9v / 1.1v ? CYM Ink Control 6 0.0v Gnd GND Ground 7 0.0v / 1.5v ? Disconnect - No effect 8 0.0v / 1.5v ?

So, interestingly, looks like all the CYM ink control is on just one shift register.
Next, need to set up some LEDs to see if I can figure out which signals are used when, until I can get a good logic analyzer attached.
For now, investigation will focus on pins 4,5 and 10,11.
Hopefully the LED test will reveal which of the other pins is the ink shift register clock.
