Fluid will not do jack diddly squat unless your racing and then you would use a higher DOT fluid that will not boil. Stainless braided lines will just give you a firmer lever, I have just changed my front pads from the useless standard ones to BENDIX Supersports sintered and the are unbelievably better than stock and will only get better once the discs have bed in as they are only 470km old and still have a lot of cross hatching on them. Also there is a few other threads about brakes so do a search but don't read into the whole must have braided lines and so forth as it is not a race bike and if it was it wouldn't have the shitty calipers that it does

The best brake is probably the conversion to a (iirc), 6 piston Brembo and a matching master. There is a bolt on kit but the cal adapter is like $300+ US.

I have a Tokico 4 pot cal off a GSXR that I'll be fitting ASAP as the combo of DOT 4, SS lines and EBC HH pads are not enough for how I want it to feel and stop.

It is shockingly good compared to the full stock system but not enough power/bite and pretty high force is needed at the lever.

Brake fluid gets hot in hard street use too. I've boiled mine enough to have fade already and no track time needed. Fresh DOT 3 is fine too, but if you are pushing the limits of the brakes anywhere DOT 4 or 5.1 is a worthwhile investment.
