No sign of fluid leaks anywhere? Master Cylinder? Brake calipers? Banjo fittings? Anywhere?
If not, then the only thing I can think of would be that fluid is bypassing the master cyl piston internally, which would require a rebuild.
If you don't have the skills, you should not attempt to work on your brakes yourself. Take it to a reputable shop and have them looked at.

If you bleed the lines correctly, there are no leaks etc then you might have a warped rotor!! I know it sounds weird but happened on a friend of mine bike... Bleed, bleed and bleed the lines, changed brake pads, got new rotors etc and it was a slightly warped rotor

This.

One of my old bikes did the exact same thing. If it sat for a while you would have to "pump" the brakes back up. Not air in the lines, but the pads were being pushed back in the calipers.

Sunny and I were tryin to figure just about the same thingyou are describing. This one bike had lost pressure and got air in but no fluid out, no leaks. Also they have gone thru 3 or so masters. I think he fixed it but I haven't been over there in a minute. Go to sunny! He'll fix it gewd
