Front brakes lose pressure

My son has a ZX6R and lost all his front brake pressure. We bled the brakes, and it was fine, until we started it up and rode a few feet. It loses pressure almost immediately.

I figured it was the master cylinder, so I bought a rebuild kit and put that in, Same thing, bled the brakes, everything seems fine until it starts moving. Then back to no pressure. The pressure does come back if the brakes are pumped a few times. Then goes away again.

I'm hoping someone can give me some advice, it would be greatly appreciated before I run it to the shop and spend money doing something I can possibly do myself.
