Get some of those wave rotors. Someone with a repsol replica had them on his bike and they look sick.

ebc is what I've always used on bikes w/o a single prob. Rotors on a bike n on a car r 2 diff worlds. The type I use is HH. The brakes on sportbikes are compatible to those on F1 cars.

Galfer is another popular brand to use too.

How serious are you about stopping quickly? Very? Then looking to Stainless Steel braided lines. And HH rated pads. Galfer makes a good product.

I was surprised last time I looked at a dealer. Brake pads are actually pretty cheap. Even carbon-carbon didn't look too pricey.

If you don't like EBC, try DP (Dunlopad) HH pads.

I bought galfer stainless steel lines both front and back, galfer HH sintered pads front and back, and galfer brake fluid.

It's all going to be installed over the winter, once my garage is completed.

Well then you're half way there. Good deal. Go with HH rated pads. Almost any brand will due.
