But I have no problems with my brakes, I have only ever found a slight spongeyness ocassionally which a rubber band overnight fixes.
I have ridden a new '06 Busa and didn't like the "wooden" feel of the 6 pot Tokicos although it could have been glazed pads.
My brakes are powerful and have very good feel and feedback. I like 'em.
I do not commute only quick mountain rides mostly two up, I have never gotten more than 6,470kms out of any type of rear tyre and use my brakes plenty.
Mine have always been good,but I just changed the lines to the Galfer dual line setup and WOW!! What a difference,maybe it`s just dumb luck but the lever is tighter than it`s ever been. I used a EZ Bleeder to fill the system and two of Motion Pro`s one way bleeder valves (one on each side) and now their tighter than when new.
'02 Sprint ST which had increasing brake lever travel for quite some time.
Several months ago I replaced the M/C with a Kawi 10R M/C. I was misled when purchasing off of ebay as it is only a 14m M/C. Nevertheless, I now have several hundred miles on it with NO increasing brake lever travel.
I still need to put a thousand or so miles before I can confirm this, but so far I am pleased!
Nevertheless, If my dealer will swap my M/C for a new Triumph 5/8, I will!
