you mention soft pedal with no feeling - i'd be concerned over air in the system. try this: engine off, pump the brake pedal a few times to remove all the vacuum from master cylinder, and then press pedal reasonably hard & hold that pressure. Should be maybe 2" of pedal movement. Does the pedal stay where it is, or slowly sink to the floor? If it sinks, then you've likely got air in the brake lines still, which is obviously bad.
apparently dot5 fluid can make the feeling in the pedal a bit vague; did you stay with dot4 or upgrade to 5? I've never driven on dot5 so not sure how noticable it is, it's just something i've read online.
With brembo's as standard on the '15CTR, they inspire confidence. Brake feel when new was as per any brake change on a car; softer than normal to start with but beds in noticeably after 50miles, and takes a few 100's to feel good.
