Default Power Sports Brakes peddle has to much travle

I have a 02 with powered sport brake, abs, and the pedal is way to soft and has 4-5in of travel. Even with new fluid and bleeding it's as if i have 50% braking power no matter how hard or how deep i push the pedal. i do not have and/or it doesn't feel like i have full brake power until the last 1/4in of pedal travail tell it is floored.

i want more feed back and more less travel needed to get my full braking potential.

and word "doesn't" doesnt exist in your dictionary either i guess

well... to answer your original question - check your brake lines and try to re-bleed the system couple or 5 times again. usually you need to bleed it for long time if any air at all got in. also check brake master cylinder.

Bleed your master. Your brake pedal is fine.

NBs with the ABS unit are a bitch to bleed. I gravity bled mine this past weekend and then did a conventional two many bleed pushing the pedal until all the bubbles were gone. Seems fine to me now but I'll know more when I start the car this weekend.
