Depends what your intending use it for it, if you want to do some trackdays, the S brakes will certainly better...Just be honest with your self, do you want to just have fun on it or set a personnel best lap time?

Which is "better", well at our age, all things being equal, my take on it is a fat flip on an S will have a slower bike than a skinny,light old flip on an R..get the engine sweet and running well and either will put a smile on your face, a set of aftermarket pipes on either is always nice to have anyway..

only for the sound or weight, as the originals are VERY good and it's not easy to outperfrom them.
You know it's cold outside when you trip over dog shit instead of standing in it.

Yeah brakes are bad but I can’t find any 1s stuff or pipes so any alternative calipers that would fit.?
