I'd want to give myself more play in the brake pedal. Only reason is for wear, and bleeding issues. Depending on the system, and how much air purge from the system, depends on how much play you need
On most my bikes I've had a little play in the brakes.
As you know, it comes down to personal preference and brake system (caliper, 1cylinder, reservoir and line)
I'm anxious to see the result, and good man for braving the crazy weather we're having!
