Soft Front Brake

My front brake feels soft after a hard fall at Glen Helen. Never took the front brake, caliper or reservoir apart. Any ideas and solutions?

You could have gotten some air in the system if the reservoir was low. If the bike lays tipped the fluid from the line flows back into the reservoir and is replaced by the air in there.

Is the reservoir low on fluid?

If the caliper mount got bent so that the pads don't sit square with the rotor at rest, it will cause this.

Come to think of it the Front brake seems to drag just a hair and the bike was face down for a while. Maybe a combo of both. Thank you guys!
