recommendations for brake upgrades

Just got a wr450 tarded. Has the oversize brake rotor, but braking is still not as good as i want. Do i need to upgrade the caliper, or will a MC be enough. I havnt thrown on a set of good pads yet, so that may do the trick, but just looking to see what yall think.

well i dont know if i want it too stiff, as it will spend most of its life in the woods. I just want a little better feel and less chatter. Probably will do lines and pads, then see how it goes.
