Just cleaned all brake calipers and pads, replaced brake fluid and let the air came out.
But now, if I brake, there isn't enough pressure and the lever arrives in contact with the handlebar.
I checked for any air bubble but nothing, still doing it.

Might be that the master cylinder has gone?

Can you pump up pressure ?
If you can get pressure hold it in ,if it slowly sinks to handle bar then master cylinder is leaking internally or externally might pay to put kit in it
cheers Tony

check in the master cylinder (fluid remooved ) that both the bleed holes into the cylinder chamber from the resevoir are not blocked ,

it is often found that the front hole (quite small ) is blocked not allowing the right pump action ..probe with a needle ? then flush out .

Ok, I'll check it then.

What a shame, time spent on removing all bubbles and now i have to remove everything!!

just suck out the fluid in the resevoir ...all the lines should still have fluid in them ...you can do it on the bike ...

just protection from fluid on the paint work required

hope that helps

Also check for bad hoses, I have two hoses that were leaking into the outer sheath and making big bubbles in the hose without leaking onto the ground or bike. The more I pumped the lever the bigger the bubbles got and when I stopped pumping they slowly went down.
The symptoms were exactly the same as yours

Some time back it was a issue like this, which was caused by some non genuine rubber shims fitted between the pistons and the pads.....and these shims was flexing to much.
