Leak after brake line change

I changed to SS brake lines, blead the brakes, and tighten the banjo bolts to torque (17 lbs). After riding, the brake levers began to become a little squishy and i noticed my right top fork seemed to have some sort of liquid residue. Once i saw that i wiped it off, re torqued the banjo bolt of the master cylinder. Fyi the brake lines are core moto and i did use the crush washers on each side of the banjo bolt. Any help would be great

Some pictures would help. Like your current setup, and of where the leak is occuring. The pics may help others diagnose since "right top fork" doesn't really tell us much.

Did u use new crush washers or reuse current ones? I would bleed brakes again and make sure all banjos are tightened down to spec.

I'm assuming we are leaking from the banjo here?
