Grabby Front Brakes
I have a 2010 Versys that I am really enjoying, except for one item in particular. At very slow speeds, any application of the brakes, however slight, results in what seems to be a hard application of the brakes. This is most noticeable when slowly pulling up to a gas pump, pushing the bike into the garage. etc. If the handle bars are turned even slightly during the application, the momentum wants the bike to tip away from the direction of the front wheel. When applied with the wheel straight, the forks compress like a pogo stick. Once the bike is moving any faster then above, I have no issue with the brakes grabbing or coming to a stop. The brakes are easy to apply with little pressure (I just don't seem to be able to apply little enough pressure). My other bike does not exhibit this tendency. Is this normal? Is there some "fix" to alleviate this?
I appreciate any advice that would help me with this.
