pull the lever back to the bar until it feels like you are giving it a good squeeze then put a cable tie etc around the lever and handle bar grip to hold the pressure on the lever and leave it like this over night, then cut the cable tie off and try the lever.
this sometimes forces the last bit of air out of the system.

Hi mike that worked a treat mate.i cannot believe the change in my brakes after a good bleed and some decent calipers.you would think that a bike which is capable of 200 mph should have brembos fitted the gen 2 bikes now have.anyway mike great tip
