The stock Brembo front brakes suck -- they are too mushy and often
fades.. scary as hell. However, there is an easy fix: get
a Nissin brake from a ZX7R at your local motorbike-junkyarld.
I paid only 90 bucks for something which normally cost $170.
Many thanks to Burt (Lancaster?), Chris Kelley, and Jim Davis.

saw the light and upgraded to the Nissin, then click here.
