Yes the Pre-tech caliper is a fantastic upgrade but it's expensive. My feeling is that a sensible pad upgrade is suitable for 95% of road riders. For racing and track days it's another story. Although the stock caliper is functional you simply need too much pressure to make it effective as a race tool - a speed adjuster - 'cause that's what a brake is for on a race cycle - setting your corner entry speed not stopping. After a few laps the pressure needed on the lever exhausts you (well it did me!) As a road stopper the stock caliper with sensible pads is fine - IMHO.
