Sticky... brakes

Ok the best way I can describe this problem is that my front brake is...well sticky or jumpy... not smooth. I think the problem is somewhere in the brake lever, and I see the boot that the lever depresses on to apply pressure to the brake lines. So did anyone else have this problem, and can is there a way to lube inside that boot to allow the brakes to be applied more smoothly?

Not really a superhawk specific question I konw but this was really pissing me off today and a search of the forum did not turn up any results for me.

You're talking about a sticky lever, right? Not sticky brakes? If so, use white lithium grease. Apply liberally to the part of the brake lever that depresses into the master cylinder. That should help.
