I often hear about how bad the front brake is on the KLR. Mine weren't bad, but I found a deal on a set of EBC's and slapped em' in.. Between that, DOT 4 synthetic fluid, and making sure it's bled well, I find the front brake just fine.

I kicked around a braided line for the front but didn't see a need..

i got 20,000 miles out of the kawi pads so i put oem right back on it. i ride a little harder than most...i bet a saner person could get 25,000 miles out of them.

I have the Galfer Green pads and braided SS line- definitely better feel and stronger. Not sure about longevity- only about 1000 miles on this setup so far.
