Front brakes feeling dull/vague
Riding on Saturday, approaching a roundabout I apply front brakes and gradually let them out but also keeping pressure while still tipping in.
As I start leaning over, it feels as if the brakes just let go and the bike pushes wide. I put it down to accidently touching throttle as I entered the corner, but the bike didn't surge or rev higher.
Riding today, it feels as if the brakes are very dull and feel vague. Initial bite is non existent and I have to pull harder than normal to get less than optimal braking...
The bike now has just over 2000kms on and I had my first spirited ride on Saturday (time constraints) . I am sure the brakes are bedded in as well by now.
I have also read of all the brake issues on the forum (oem brake pads, possible air in lines, etc) but I am not sure if these apply to my situation.
Has anyone else experienced this?
