I've had an 08 Wee Strom for a little less than a year now and I keep finding upgrades or mods to add to functionality or comfort. Right from the start I was not impressed with the brakes. I ended up upgrading these and rode today with the new brakes. As Frank Romano would say.."HOLY CRAP!!!" My bike now has sport bike brakes. I went with EBC HH pads and a set of Galfer stainless brake lines. Huge difference. The front brake lever went from a 2/3 squeeze to stop to a 1/4 squeeze. Excellent mod for people that want better braking.
