Default brake prob

Got a bizarre problem with a bmw k100lt wondering if anyone else has had same issues.

In a straight line brakes are 100% but if you turn to left or right you lose pressure or go backwards again turning you lose pressure. Its non abs or maybe used to be but has had gubbins removed. Its had a new master cyclinder I have routed two braided hoses to each caliper direct from the master and it still does it. The pistons must be moving back into the brembo calipers when manouvering.
Its dodgy to say the least even something daft like turning round is hard work. You end up building the brakes back up again.

Gonna try a differant set of calipers from another bm see if that sorts it.
dont look at it ride the thing
