Heh... I had the same problem with my 06 (Radial M/C and all) at Arroyo this weekend, and Roger down there brought up a neat point. In very short words, he said the problem with both the 1st and 2nd gen Zx-10R's was actually in the calipers... something about the piston bores not being machined perfectly perpendicular/square to the mounting axis (read: the plane of the brake rotors). The more the brake pads wear down, the greater the brake fade effect becomes when they warm up. He said he'd actually discussed this with D. Chandler when he was down there, as he was having a similar problem with his bike.
I can personally agree with this, as I took my bike down there when it was brand-spankin-new. The lever would fade back to a certain point after I got the brakes warmed up, but nowhere near the bar when I had the lever set out..... about halfway before the tire would start to howl. When I went back last week, the ONLY thing different was the amount of wear on my pads (they were about 1/2-2/3 worn out...), and the fade after 5 laps would have the lever at the bar. I slapped a new set of pads in right there, and it was back to the good 'ol 'half pull before the tire locked up' way it was when it was brand new. I also noticed another thing that goes to confirm this... the pads showed an uneven wear pattern, as if they were not being pushed even;y/square into the rotors.
Things like uber-fluid, SS lines, and other crap will help, but I believe that Roger and Doug are right about the calipers being suspect. He said keeping fresh pads in at all times will stave off the effects... but that can get kind of expensive if you do a lot of track time.
My 2 pennies :)
Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.
