There are a shit ton of motorcycles out there, that even with factory spec/service brakes, you still need four fingers on the lever to get maximum braking from.
I recently replaced the pads, fluid, and lines of the braking system on my ex500. Still have to squeeze HARD with all fingers for max braking. In normal riding I can get by and get stopped with two fingers. In town, I use all four, just in case.
