Chucking the original flexible clamshell caliper(s) and changing to a single later EX type 2-piston caliper with EBC HH pads will do wonders for braking. Going to longer rear shocks also makes a noticeable improvement in handling. Tight swing arm bushings and head bearings are important on the old triples as well as all other motorcycles! But don't run open velocity stacks on one.
