919 front brake questions

Ive got 7k miles on the brakes and they are getting kinda squishy. Id like to get SS lines and new pads, any recommendations for those? I also remember seeing that the front RC51 calipers bolt right on but I cant find it anywhere, anyone know if thats the case?

I put S/S lines on the RC & it's wayyyyyy better.
I also threw on a set of EBC HH pads w/ no complaints... and that's w/ 5 back to back runs thru Deal's gap. ...but I ride an RC, not a 9'r.

You may want to check the color of your fluid too. If it's getting darker, a bleed may be in order. Don't have the service manual atm, but I think Honda recommends chaing brake fluid every 12K or three years whatever comes first.

Thanks for the feedback. The fluid is still good, its been 7k miles and 5 months. No one know about the RC51 Calipers?
