I agree about fork dive effecting the braking. If you have to brake hard, it seems there's a short time lapse while the forks do their diving then the brakes start to work. It feels better with a gradual squeeze on the lever rather than a snatch at it.
Fork dive is not a good feeling, but you adapt your rding style to suit the bike.
If you are going for it hell for leather round the twisties, if you do all your braking on the approach to a bend, while the bike is upright and stable in a straight line, come off the brakes as you reach your bend, match your speed to the severity of the bend, so you can always stop within the distance you can see to be clear on your side of the road. Then as the bend opens up, power out the other side.
Braking hard on a big trailie half way round a bend just doesn't feel right. The bike will probably go round, but it doesn't inspire confidence, unlike a true sports bike.
Personally, it's all down to your riding style.
