Does anyone recommend any particular brake pads for the front brake and also would changing to a braided brake line make much difference to stopping power cheers.

Not sure about the pads myself but brake lines like Mr Intruder don't stretch or bulge like the stock ones. I know its only very marginal but it has to make a difference but weather it is actually noticable to anything other than a computer is another matter all together

EBC are pretty good brake pads, But I'm not sure if they're any better than the rest ?

I have a S/S braided brake hose and find it better(mainly the fact that it will last longer) and the fact that i can't swell out under pressure.For around £20 it is well worth it.The brakes on these bikes are bad enough,so any improvement is recomended.

I fitted the Wezmoto brake line because I needed extended lines and the service from them is second to non. I would probably never of changed my line if I hadn't needed to but agree with Alfie, any improvement is worth while improvement with brakes.

Mate of mine is a Suzuki nut & rides a GSX1400. He reckons as the bike ages the hoses begin to bulge, so because the braking power isnt all going down the line, it's diluted.

So he's just fitted braided hoses & says its an improvement.

But I guess it all depends how 'old & bulgy' your current hoses are!
