    There could be a few issues. Is the throttle trim bumped up, this will affect your brakes. If that's good did you check the brake pad screws, these get loose from time to time. Then of course the linkage...has it been adjusted lately? Also the brake disc itself needs to be scuffed up with some heavy grit sandpaper occasionally.
