Give us a brake!

Anybody have an opinion on this? One of my only gripes with living with the Transalp is its somewhat weak brakes. I was planning to swap the front brake lines for a stainless one, which was a significant improvement on my CB500/4. The rear drum is just a lost cause I think. I put in some grooved EBC shoes but they aren't much better than the originals. It would help if I corrected the linkage action to the rear brake ( my Alp was once crashed and the left footpeg bracket is slightly skewed, causing the rear brake linkage to be out of whack.)
EBC seems to have a replacement disc, but I can't tell whether it's just an OEM replacement or an upgraded design. If it is an upgraded disc, what pads would be good with it?

Edit: Here's the EBC disc I mentioned:
