It could be. Try the zip-tie method. If you get a nice stiff lever and then it fades away back into mush I would guess that the master needs a rebuild. I might have a good master for a zx9 I would have to look though.

I read your other post before this one so disregard that answer as I'm now going with the magician above as I had the exact same thing happen to me before and its actually the carriers that get warped rather than the rotors themselves, it pays to clean up the disc bobbins every few months to stop them seizing which causes this.
