front brake lever suddenly has a lot more play
My '11 Daytona has been sitting for longer than I care to admit, and when I pulled it out today I noticed that the front brake lever has a lot more play in it than I remember; the brakes do grab, but with two-finger braking I could hit the lever against my other two knuckles. I don't see any signs of a leak and the fluid level is still OK, could air have still worked its way in there somehow after not being ridden? I opened the cap and tied the lever back to try and squeeze any air out so I'll see what it looks like tomorrow, but it concerns me not knowing how that happened.
