I would go for a bleed, but on my XTR brakes i found it was down to the rotor. Shimano rotors are a pile of.... I put some Avid G2 rotors on and the XTR became the best brakes i've ever used!! Now i couldn't see how a rotor would make the difference but it did, and the same with my mates Shimano brakes.

Worth trying a few if you can to see what works best with what. Try combo's of pad types and rotors means you will find a sweet setup soon enough.
I'm currently using Hayes rotors and Superstar pads (red) with Hope M4 brakes on one bike and Shimano rotors (XT) seem to work well with Juicy 3's on my other. Go figure ? :?
