    Have only a few miles on this bike, and notice the front brake lever pull seems a little low, when applying the brake.

    Is this typical of softails? On other bikes I remember a firmer brake lever feel - seldom more than a half way pull.

    No leaks - reservior full.

    Anyone else notice this?

    Thanks

    ABS Brakes or not?

    No - no ABS. This lever pull is about 3/4 way to te handlebar......hard to tell if it's firm or not at that location......so will probably have the brake bled to see if that helps.
