Well, the lever is there for one purpose - to allow your fingers to squeeze the plunger in the master cylinder. It sounds to me like you think that the levers are just remove and replace. That's not true. If you didn't line up the plunger with the lever point and get it in the right way, then you get exactly what you've got now. Which is a pinched and misaligned plunger that is putting force on the brakes. And like everyone else has already told you above, in this condition be prepared for a full front brake lock up at speed within a a few miles/kilometers of travel. DO NOT RIDE THE BIKE AT ALL until you get this situation figured out.
There should be a small dimple in the lever where the plunger is supposed to reside. If that area rotates around or the plunger isn't properly aligned, then the movement isn't correct. Bad news!
I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
