Brembo 17Rcs or 19Rcs... which is KR recommended for a 2011 cbr1000?

Looking to reduce squish after brakes are applied, and reduce the amount of force it takes when they are hot. Thinking the force part is me over heating the pads. (Among people of similar skill levels I notice I often brake harder/later.) Recommendations on grippier pads is welcome as well. Currently running RJL vesrah.

Trying to put part numbers to my xmas list/ off season purchase list. Thanks

19.. The smaller one is meant for bikes with a single caliper.

I'd be very surprised if you're overheating the RJL pads - That's pretty rare these days, and RJL's are excellent.

I used to beat up the brakes on the Aprilia (Bluing the rotors and all) at a 1:40 NJMP pace. Stop slowing down so much... You'll go faster.

Seriously - "Lighter, longer" is a thing. When you stab the shit out of them, you normally end up over-braking. :)

You could try some EBC RS pads for giggles.. They're inexpensive to try to see if you like them, but RJL's are hard to beat.

I think I'll try the MC first and see how it feels. Perhaps the adjustable fulcrum point will add the needed leverage.

As for not slowing down so much... Agreed! Awaiting my sense of speed to catch up. When I'm being towed through a corner, at the entry my 'going to fast' red light keeps blinking, which I have to over ride. No big deal tho it'll come, I'm in no hurry.
