So my front brake lever has about an inch of travel before it engages... then I have not much room from no braking to full braking, maybe 1/2 inch... I bled the front brakes... any thoughts? Is this normal on this bike? Thanks...

Bleed it a couple of times. I bleed from the bottom pushing the oil up and out that way any air will rise up to the lever/reservoir. Air trapped in a line will resist the flow if you bleed from the top to the bottom. Also remove the lever from the clipon and position the lever so that the highest spot is the reservoir.
You may notice that the bolt that holds the banjo fitting will be the highest point on the lever when it is mounted on the clipon. Some folks will break that bolt loose and bleed air out there.
