XR6T brakes are the same as the XT brakes. Nothing special.

In regards to upgrades, it's all up to whether you want to go larger diameter rotors or not.

It is possible to upgrade your factory size rotors with slotted and dimpled with braided lines, and EBC performance pads.

If you wanted to go larger than the 298mm stock ones, there are a few options.

Level 1 upgrade consists of 325mm rotors, 2 piston PBR calipers, EBC pads and braided lines.

Level 2 upgrade consists of 335mm rotors, AP racing 4 piston calipers, EBC pads and braided lines.

Level 3 upgrade consists of 343mm rotors, AP racing 6 piston calipers, EBC pads and braided lines.

Level 2 upgrade retails for about $4,500.
