So, if I may, what y'all are saying is that a pad upgrade from stock will provide a higher level of braking performance, even if I don't upgrade to braided steel brake lines?
This would be nice, for there are times when I feel the stockers aren't bringing my 220 pound carcass to a halt as quickly as I'd like.
Previous bike had a full set (3) of Brembo Gold brakes w/ steel lines, and after a fresh tune up of the system as maintenance, those brakes could bring a charging hippopotamus to a halt on a dime. So, getting used to the 650's brakes has been a series of minor lessons.
