I look forward to the sponsorship money Joe.  I am worth it Wink
 
Re back brake yello, not all bikes have a problem but even on those that don;t the brake is often less than "sharp"
 
Some can be fixed with a correct bleed (m/c off and raised up) and some (post 04 bikes) need the MC relocated as it's on the side of the engine and gets too hot.
Aftermarket rearsets help if they come with a different brake lever as they increase the leverage. The oem lever it too short to get decent power.
 
Nothing to be worried about though
