Finished up the brakes and did some testing today. Forget what I said earlier, the brakes feel amazing!
Brake lever travel is the same as stock BUT
bakes are now super linear. The 'bittyness' of the stock setup is completly gone. At the start of the stroke, the lever is fairly light and will apply the brakes very gently and gradually. At the end of the stroke, lever is hard as a rock. With full locked brakes the lever does not touch handle bar.
In between the start and end of the stroke is a very very nice progressive build up of both braking force and lever firmness.
Call me crazy but when squeezing gently I can kinda 'feel' the texture of the rotors and pads through the lever! (this maybe a psychological effect since I'm sooo proud of my own work LOL. Independent testing needed!
Final thoughts on my set up: Its prefect for street riding and commuting in traffic! Both clutch and brakes are now much easier to control and modulate. Also really happy with the look of matching MC's and levers. If I didn't ride in stop start traffic everyday I would probably have gone with the larger MC's as the clutch/brake feel Umop described would suit spirited riding much better.
