As usual around here ..

.. acres of good advice. I can't add very much except I've just upgraded the brakes on my 916 with:

~ new stainless lines
~ new Dot 4 synthetic fluid
~ new Bendix pads from Cornerspeed - ask Nelly which ones
~ about two hours de-seizing the bl**dy brake calipers on the righthand side caliper
~ bleeding the air out of the top master cylinder joint
~ leaving a huge elastic band on the brake lever for 2 days

and they're ..... excellento

TF, reckon you just needing to get used to a different feel. When I fitted an AP master cylinder to my 996 it felt really strange at first as I was having to pull the lever quite hard. Since changing the calipers to GP Brembo's, I have adjusted the ratio slightly and it all makes sense now, pull hard to start with, brakes start to bite then it's two fingers all the way.
