Question Steering & brakes 1st track day

Finally got around to tracking the G4 (non ABS)...

Any recommendations to help my bike steer a little faster, I find myself running wide. Also I'm getting some of that famous brake fade/chatter after a couple of laps mostly while coming hot into corners.

Just want to mention that I have ss braided lines and running motul 600 fluid.

Right on. I think I'm going to start off with 6mm then play it by ear. I'm still debating on either carbone lorraine or versa hopefully that helps out
