Maybe this is stupid and I should know this? But, is there a way to reduce the amount of front (hand) brake lever travel such that it needs less of a squeeze (less distance in toward the grip) until full braking is reached? I feel like I can squeeze it basically almost all the way into the grip at this point.

What year bike? Id consider changing the fluid and bleeding them. that usually does what your looking for. brake fluid does need to be changed periodically.

It's a brand new2015 FLTRXS bought from the Dealer less than a month ago. My previous FLTRX had similar break feel. I don't think there is anything wrong, just the way the break travel is. I just want it to be tighter.

Do like the other guys have said take it back to the dealer. There could be some air in the front brake system which will make it feel spongy.
