The front disk brakes on my 1982 KZ750H3 work fine. The lever feels hard when pulled and doesn't need any pumping and all seems fine. Except that the lever pulls in almost to the point of touching the grip! The pads are nearly new so it's not a wear problem. The master cylinder is stock and was rebuilt a year ago. I just tried bleeding the lines but found no air, and it didn't help. I've tried moving the master cylinder into different positions on the (stock) handlebars, but it doesn't help. It stops fine right now, but once the pads start to wear I'm afraid the lever will actually hit the grip!

It's been this way since I bought it and I suppose it's possible that the lever was bent when a previous owner dropped the bike, but the lever looks good.
I see no adjustment for this. Any ideas? Thanks!
