I've started using my front brake a lot more and a lot harder than I used to a while back when i started riding those very long 4 months ago and i'm finding that the brakes don't seem to grab as much any more nor stop me quite as quick as they used to... Infact I'm almost feeling as if my front brake is only about as effective as my back brake. Having said that i've locked up the front on 2 different occasions recently. One was a slippery road, the other was an E-Brake when a car jumped lanes on me in traffic without indicating. Back stepped out but I managed to come off the brake and straighten up fairly OK... Not once did I panic which I was very happy about. Everything was cool calm and collected. Anyways... My brake lever has a lot more play in it now which I expect comes from using the brake more since the bike was practically new when i got it... but it almost feels like the cable is stretching if I pull the brakes on hard enough rather than the bike stopping faster. Is there actually a cable or is it hydrolic? This is a GPX250 btw. I just don't feel like the bike brakes as hard as it used to and I don't know if it's because I'm getting used to the G-forces or if it's losing braking power.
