Front Brake requires pumping
I just bought a 2013 V Strom 650 ABS. The front brake lever goes most of the way to the hand grip before the brakes grab. If I release the lever and pull it again, the brake is applied much farther out from the handlebar. The brakes do not feel spongy indicating air in the lines.
Since this is a new purchase, I'm going to go over the bike completely, bleed and flush the brakes, coolant, etc. including an oil change, lubing the chain and more.
Is the brake feel normal (as someone told me) or does this sound like something a complete flush will remedy. All brakes on bikes before this one have been consistently firm with an engagement point that did not change from the first to multiple pulls.
