So far I've replaced my stock;

-master cylinder for a 5/8 Nissin MC (mushiness could be a Nissin issue though...)

-brake lines for dual Goodridge clear stainless lines (stock lines were stainless, but black-coated, but I removed the fender cross-over)

-reservoir for a Rizoma billet reservoir (looks nicer and is a bottom-feed rather than side-feed)


I plan to swap out my slightly warped rotors for wave rotors and eventually get a GSXR1k USD front end so I'd have Tokico radial calipers. I'll post up if there is an immediate difference, but until then, shoot up fixes.

Doing a caliper rebuild kit will return the braking to good quality, but then I've heard they return to mush after another 1,000 miles or so.

You can also do the 'piston push' by compressing the pistons into the calipers by pusing on the pads. This is a temporary fix at best and generally only lasts for 20 miles or so if you're lucky.

Mushy brake syndrome has been reported on 98-06 Speed Triples, Sprint ST's, Daytonas, and even the new 675. Triumph is apparently currently investigating the problem...

Or you could just get a MC banjo which has a bleeder built into it? The GSXR600k5 radial MC I bought has a bleeder right on the MC!
