Weak front brakes?

My front brakes on my 2001 didnt work real good when I bought the bike about a month ago. I could pull the handle all way back to the grip if I pulled real hard. I tried getting the air out of the system even used the vaccum pump to pull the air out but it didnt seem to help. I read on some other sites that other guy have the same problem so I bought a complete used front brake system off ebay from a DR650. I was going to put the master cyl. and the line on but thought I would try the master cyl. first. after bleeding the system I now have 100% better feel in the handle and alot more stoping power. I can lock the front wheel up on dry black top. The 650 banjo bolt also has alot bigger hole in it. Hope this helps. Alan
