    Clyde's Juicy Five upgrade - RX or K24?

    I've got an '09 Fuel EX 8 with 185mm Juicy Fives. I can't really complain about these Juicy's, but I would like a firmer brake lever return. The levers' return is a bit soft or mushy. I think I've ruled out Elixir CRs after trying them out, but am considering Formulas, RX or K24. I will likely have to order them sight unseen.

    -Do these Formulas have a firm lever return?
    -Is either better suited to a 245lb. trail rider?
    -Any other considerations?

    Have you tried bleeding the brakes?
    maybe the lever feel will improve ( and would be pretty cheap to try before upgrading)


    also at 245lb, I would recommend upgrading to a 203mm front rotor, if the forks allow it.
