I am using the Ferodo CP911 Organic material compound pads on the front and really like them.
From Ferodo's website:

i have gotten very used to MV's progressive feel. do these pads change that at all? i know some who switch the pads to get alot more bite. i'm not trying to do that. i would like something better than stock but not compromise the progressive nature. are there any out there that can do this?
The Ferodos are more progrssive than the MV stock pads and when they start to grip they grip very well. The MV Sotck pads always felt like wet cardboard to me and left me without confidence in the stock brakes. I don't think you could een come close to locking up the front wheel with the stock pads.
