Another random motorbike questions

In my haste the other morning I tried to move my bike with the disc lock on causing it to clunk quite softly into the calipre. Now for some reason I have no front break its just like its empty when i am riding. Yet if I am stationary I can pump it up and break bites totally bizarre anyone got any ideas. Tried a few forums but not got any replies yet so hoping the MT oracles can help.

    Havnt had the time yet but thats the plan for the weekend. However I dont get why the other caliper wouldnt bite as the disc lock only hit one.. If that makes sense

    arent the calipers a pair though? i mean if one wont bite neither will the other?
     
    in any case if the pad is off alignment in may not matter whether the caliper is bitning or not - if the pads not connecting with the disc when the caliper bites (if you see what i mean?)

    Yeah but I have two sets of calipers one on each disc on the front which is why I thought that the left one may bite on the other disk even if the one on the right doesnt. In case you havnt guessed I dont know feck all about auto mechanics... lol
