Front brake lever has lots of play in it. So much that it comes close to using all available travel space.

Master cylinder fluid is full and both pads have about .25 inch of friction material left. Manual says thickness of over .04 inches is OK.

Have not tried bleeding yet.

Any suggestions here?

What is the thickness of new pads?

Thanks

Many people make the same mistake....if you did not run the mastes cylinder low or dry you DO NOT nead to bleed your brakes...
you do nead to remove your calliper ( or both ) then push the pistons ALL THE WAY IN...easy way is 2 large screw drivers...reinstall the callipers...pump the pistons back out by repedly operating the brake lever...problem fixed...
what happened is 2 of the pistons were STUCK...and neaded to be freed up by pushing them all the way back in their hole...
