I had similar problems on my GS.... brake lines were deteriorated inside and rubber was flaking off. this allowed the brakes to actuate but were very slow to retract. it also put rubbish in the ABS & killed it. bike was a year 2000. the hoses looked good on the outside. if there are/were any black specks in the old fluid thats whats happening

I agree that the "no feel" lever is due to air, sometimes it takes a 2nd set of hands to do a good bleed. sometimes it helps to pump the lever & hold while someone opens the bleeder & then shuts the bleeder. repeat that until the feel returns.
