Keep in mind that if the vertical hose from the master cylinder to the caliper gets air in it, air bubbles rise, so it needs to be bled from the top. Bleed as usual, then crack the banjo bolt at the master cylinder (rag under to catch the fluid), squeeze the grip, tighten the bolt, release, correct the fluid level, repeat, repeat. It can be tedious, but it'll finally yield a firm lever. It sometimes helps to strap the lever down to the grip overnight.
