I don't know if my front brakes have gotten grabbier or if I just notice it more because my throttle is now smooth - but even the slightest touch of the brake makes it initially grab hard (and dive the front end). Even just walking it into the garage the initial touch of the brakes causes a harsh reaction. Steel braided brake lines are on my wish list for the bit of mush I get as I'm braking hard - but I've got to fix this initial bite problem. I've upgraded to HH pads on other bikes and had them act like this - but I'm still on the stock pads. I wasn't looking at swapping brake pads performance - but I'm tempted to get some EBC GG's to see if they cure the grab...
