I've got a '98 WR and I'm having an awful time with the brakes. My first problem is that my front brakes are extremly soft. I can pull the break lever back to the handle bar without too much trouble. The brakes still work but the stopping power stinks. My second problem is that my front brakes do not release all the way. In other words the brake is always on a little. Anyone have any ideas.

maybe your braking system has got some air bubbles inside which cause the pressure to drop. remove all those bubble and you are ready tp squeeze that brake real hard!
as for the always ON brake, maybe you can try spraying bit of lubrication into or clean the piston which is inside your brake calibre,rust or any dirt maybe jam the piston which cause the dragging of the front wheel
hope this help :)
