So if you take a xr master cylinder, pulling the brake lever will be harder in order to get the same brake power, but it will not improve it. Something that may work is an oversize kit from EBC. Since NX250 And XR600 share the same brake calipers, you can take a XR600 280mm brake disc

Thats an example for an 1/2 inch master cylinder (Xl250 degree)

Once again, thanks alot for your thorough description Scrambler66

Ive just had a thorough service on my stock brake: new sealings and fluid, sintered pads from EBC. Still dont like what I get. Im used to quite some sharper stuff. Within this summer Ill hope the oversized one will sit on my bike
