          I have a similar problem with my KTM front brakes being spongy when the pads get half worn out. I’ve gone to great efforts of bleeding them with no joy. But replacing the pads restores my braking strength.

                      OMG his hands talking. Very scary. He can even stop clapping sound with hands. How do you do it?
                      He is alchemist and knows magic. I will not subscribe to such scary hands

                            Simple question, why didn't you just add some weld to the frame side and file it back? Just curious as there may be something obvious I'm missing.

                                "No other pegging, except foot, is allowed" - hey now c'mon, no kink-shaming here! We're all gentlemen, there's no reason to exclude someone just because he occasionally likes for his partner to take the reins, as it were... Do you what you like with a person what consents, gents! The world's too small and life's too short to feel bad about what makes you feel good.

                                              Anther consequence of welding the 7075 Tony is the it will usually drop a few T levels

                                                          I onced had a similar experience with a Renault Clio Sports car, I had just changed the pads but the owner complained that the brakes were spongy. Turns out that the pads I was given were the wrong type, so as soon as I changed the pads the problem was solved.

And for your extra bonus points if it's Magnesium use white vinegar and will also turn grey black bubbling. yes you can tig weld magnesium with the right filler and lots of argon.

Maybe harder to get access but it appears the frame is steel so...On the other hand, I paused the video to read the instruction placard on the ultrasonic footpeg cleaner... was NOT disappointed!
