SOURCE: i have a FZS600 02,
hi m8, all the setting on the lever will do is adjust to your style of riding ,, not adjust the pads ,,sounds like the pistons on the calipers are not releasing wen the pressure is off, ,,ie brake pads are not goin back ,,if u r a every day rider ,,the salty conditions will cause seize ups,,best thing is wipp a caliper off the wheel,, dont touch the brake lines,, just undo the two caliper bolts, then undo the two screws onthe master cylinder,,reservoir,,lift off the cap, u will need some copper grease,and a small paint brush,, take the pads out, and smear some copper grease round the pistons, then prize them back in a bit,, dont push them in to far ,,just enuff, till grease to do its job,,by undoing the reservoir the air that may get pushed will be able to escape,,replace pads, and bolts, cheers

the abs module needs to be bled via the hd digital technician 2 software; sorry need to take it to a dealer; can't fully bleed the module w/o it and it may interfere w/ warranty issues later
