Hi demon_pi, You could have a weak spot or spots in your system that is causing your pedal to be soft. Try locating all of the rubber hoses in the brake system. Check them for bulging or blistering. Please as necessary. You may also want to get braded lines that will reduce the bulging of rubber hoses. Hope this helps!
