    2000 sportster sport front brake leaver travel.

    Hi all.
    Was thinking of getting my dads sportster sport up and running again after being off the road for a few years. I rode it a few years back and it had a very long front brake. He did mention this to the dealer when he got it new and they said it was normal for one of these. It's a year 2000 model with the dual front disk on a i think 4 pot calipers. Is this normal and if so is there a later master cylinder that would give a better feel at the leaver.
    Thanks

    You could try doing a fluid flush and change first, given that it has been standing for a long time.

    We gave it a flush out last year and it didn't really help. It's a odd feeling, it's not spongy but seems like a lot more travel than i have on the other bike.
