The EBC HH pads make a huge difference in stopping power so maybe give that a try first if you haven't already. My '08 came with a 5/8" master cylinder and although the lever felt firm, the braking power was lacking for me, especially during two-up riding.. I switched it out for a 14mm M/C, which made enough of a difference in power to make me happy, which I'll admit isn't easy! I can now lock up the wheel with 2 fingers. The downside is a mushy feel to the lever. So to me, it was worth trading a powerless "wood" feel for a spongy one-finger brake. They fade though 10-15 minutes into a track session, so I upgraded to wave rotors, hopefully that will help with that problem. It all depends on what you're looking for from your front brake. The photo is my caliper with Ti hardware.
