The Superhawk is quite a bit less comfortable than the 919.
I have a 2001 Yamaha FZ1, and it too is much more comfortable than the Superhawk.

No problem. And I agree with Cadbury64 that the 954, 600rr and SP2 setups provide excellent braking. I have them on my VTR with a 954 front end and EBC EPFA pads and the power and feel are awesome.

The OEM VTR calipers differ in appearance, but the others are the same except for color.

I have always wanted to try the Vesrah RJLs, but end up getting the EPFAs at a better price. No complaints, though.
