@hel69 check your caliper to make sure it is not seized and continues to apply the brakes during normal driving.

Thank you i will continue using the brake I did let some pressure off after riding when it was binding and hot. I think it helped.


I have bleed the rear brake many times and still it closes when hot .I'm thinking maybe the rubber hose is collapsing when hot . ill continue to work at it . thanks anyway


@hel69 that sounds very reasonable. Let us know what ended up working for you.
