Under tank to handle bar brake M/C conversion

I put a R80gs master cylinder on the bar of my 76 R90/6. Braided hose properly blead and adjusted ATE caliper. The GS cylinder is the same size as the under tank unit. Lever requires major effort to get decent brake action. I think I gave up some mechanical advantige provided by the leverd cable to M/C on the under tank unit.
Do I need to push more or less flued volume to the caliper? Seems like sleeving down would work.
Any thoughts? Helpfull ones preferd.
