It still stops fine just seems like the lever needs to come in alot before it starts stoping and seems just a little strange to me.
I'm not on those bikes so I can't compare with your comment. If you do notice a significant difference, then perhaps the rubber is aging in the LT so the lines are starting to swell under pressure. Might there also be some air in the lines? Is the fluid level good and the fluid more clear than tea colored brown? If it is low then perhaps there is a small small leak that has allowed a bit of air to migrate into the system. They would also allow the fluid to get a source of moisture.
