Before that you had the high hard pedal, the difference in the bore of the caliper pistons size is pretty big, more fluid is required.
You do have the Large reservoir part of the master going to the fronts right?
I've gotten pretty good at bleeding by myself, I use a pressure bleeder with 20# air on it and a piece of clear plastic tubing on the bleeder screws so I can observe any possible air bubbles. As you can see by the pic, the larger reservoir is the rear chamber, It has the blue (2#) rpv and a tee under it for the front circuit while the rear circuit has the red (10#) rpv. I have a 1" bore C3 m/c ordered, hopefully the fittings are the same...

I ran that M/C without rpv.. And didn't have any problems..
No I didn't, as the tubing pieces would have required extensions which I didn't want to fool with. Can't see where it would affect my current problem, either. Actually, the rpv in the front would help (if anything) by keeping the pads in light contact, causing less required piston movement...
