What else did you do?

Thanks!

Something is up with those brake lines. Bar end weights. Handguards. Windscreen addon, mirror extender, additional small mirror.

Those are Zeta hand guards and Galfer brake lines. The windscreen extension is from Wunderlich BMW...just installed, and I am trying to find a height and angle for it that represents the sweet spot for me. All I know at present is that the lowest setting (immediately above the stock screen) wind hits me at eye-brow level at highway speed.

BY the way I upgraded to braided brake lines on my MT-01 and didnt notice a big difference...just in case some are expecting a lot from the upgrade it doesn't make a world of difference...

My experience is different. I installed Venhill steel braided brake lines, and I feel the bike stop faster and the brake lever feels crisper, not as spongy.

Nothing's too cruel if it's funny enough.

I put Galpher SS Brake Line on my Versys noticed a slight better than stock on the rear and a much better than stock on the front. Just put Vesrah brake pads on and it feels great on both ends.

Yeah I must say my 6 piston front brakes were already pretty good, thats possibly why the difference with braided line wasnt substancial...
