New 2011 custom SE. 125 miles Brake pedal goes all the way to the stops.

It is intermittent, and I can pump them up for a bit, but then it goes flat again. Sometimes the pedal is up, sometimes not so much.
No fluid leaks, pinched lines or other visable anomalies.

I tried bleeding them which helped, but its still intermittent.
This may be a faulty master cylinder.

Sucks, I planned to break in my Mustang seat riding to Wrightwood this Sunday.

Anybody else with a similar problem?

125 miles? One word: Warranty.

My Bad guys,
The Kawasaki dealer found that my sabblebag frame would touch the rear caliper when the suspension compressed.

This preloaded the caliper against the disk. When I activated the brake the caliper had to push the pads and overcome the extra gap created by the contact with the saddlebag frame.

Nice group of guys at Saugus Kawasaki.
Wrightwood tommorow!
