You're probably right bout the air. i can pull the lever all the way into the handle bar. I've tried reverse bleeding it, pushing fluid from the caliper into the reservoar. Also tried with vacum bleeding it from the caliper, many times. And pulling the lever, opening the bleed nipple, closing the nipple, releasing the lever

now its bites better, but as I said, can pull the lever all the way inn

how do you guys bleed, thinking of dismantling everything, blow through with compressed air, changing the copper washers

What I’ve done is after bleeding the front brake is rapped a rope around the front brake and handlebar so I would keep pressure on it overnight releasing it in the morning. Works great for Me. I’ve done the same thing on a bike that been sitting for long while and brake is mushy.

Should have mentioned I've tried that too. You keep the lid on the reservoar on, right ?

I used zip ties and clamped it all the way in

The lid on or off does not matter. Most have it off as that is better for monitoring reservoir level and if air is escaping the system.

I would confirm you do not have a leak at the caliper or master. I discovered a piston seal leak in my caliper after a few frustrating attempts at initial bleeding.
