Just fitted a new galfer stainless steel rear brake line to the rear. Definitely better than the standard line, but still a lot of room for improvement. Anyone running an aftermarket caliper, not sure if they're much better ? Like to hear any tips/suggestions to get this working better ?  Not ridden a KTM in a while but have read the brembo brakes shit all over the standard Yamaha ones

 

Yes drained the fluid & used new DOT fluid when i installed the line. Installed new genuine OEM brake pads too, running standard OEM disc

Go to a more organic brake pad compound...

The rear brakes on any Japanese bikes are equally as good as a KTM and IMO better. Better modulation and control with better feel...

What exactly are you after? Are you getting fade or just better feel at the pedal? My new 250F actually feels really good both fr/rr. I am not sure what was changed over the old one but I was pretty happy with it. I still installed a Braking oversized rotor/pads kit on the front since I have a habit of heating up the stocker in races. I have no complaints with the rear. i assume new pads would be the next step for you, however.

Not so much fade now ive changed the line, more grabbing/biting power. When the bike was new, (as with most under 6 months old) they where great.
