DR650SE Index Topic #5- BRAKES

Brakes don't seem to get a lot of discussion when it comes to the DR650. Suzuki struck a good balance for dual-sport braking. Not too powerful, which would be trouble off pavement, or too weak for quick stopping on the street.
Not that there aren't parts out there for stronger brakes. Oversized and wave rotors, braided steel lines, and different brake pad compounds are all available.
Please tell us what's worked the best for you when it's time to stop, or about upgrades you've made to your braking system...
