You can adjust your brake lever to give you some free play before the brake engages, if that is what you are asking. If your brake engages immediately the adjustment may be too tight.
My manual on the 1300 says to have 2 to 5 mm or .08 to .2 inches of free play measured at the very end of the throttle lever.
The force applied to the brakes is still a function of the amount of pressure you put on the lever. For some operations of a motorcycle finesse is important. With the front brake you use a gentle squeeze and then increase the pressure as needed.
I'm always working very diligently to discover the obvious.
