08 910s front brake feel.

Well weather has finally been nice enough for some riding. Still getting used to the bike but love this thing! Have a question though..I had a Ducati ss before this bike and the front brakes were outstanding..the front brake on the Brut stop but not what I was expecting..I'm a mechanic by trade and I can say it's not an air in the system feel it just takes a lot of effort to slow down using just the fronts,almost like a pad issue..I adjusted the lever to fit me a little better and it's tolerable but I'd really like to have some better stopping power..the pads are stock and the bike only has a touch over 2000 miles on it..is there a better compound pad I should look into? Or is there something else I should be looking at?

Fresh fluid....and, even though the pads may appear unworn they could be glazed and not very "grippy". Try taking them out and "cleaning them with some course sandpaper and brake clean. If that doesn't help then go for some alternate pads.

My 910R (with the radial Brembos) had great brakes for about 20k miles...then they started feeling wooden, even though nowhere near worn out. New pads brought back the bite I liked.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thanks! I've changed the fluid already..I was going to pull the pads and check them next even though like you said they look like new...rear brake is awesome unlike the Duc I had ..rear brake on it was just along for the ride..

I believe those are the same six pot Nissins (axial) I had on my 2005 F4 1000S. At the same time, I owned an 08 312R, and with the stock Brembo goldline P4/34 calipers, the braking power between the two bikes was noticeable, but minimal. I then installed a set of monoblock M50's with a Panigale master cylinder and it was night and day. I felt unsafe riding the 1000S after that. After the suggestions above, I'd try the Brembo RCS19 mc and if that doesn't improve braking drastically, try Brembo axial calipers or even a set of used, newer radial forks. I bought a set with axle and washers off eBay for $300. Best of luck.

Mine work fine, even for stoppies -- I replaced stock lever with adjustable short evotech.

I agree with Ed "Try taking them out and "cleaning them with some course sandpaper and brake clean. If that doesn't help then go for some alternate pads."
