So I bought my bike a few months ago and it was pretty beat up so I’m finally making it around to fixing my brakes, I ordered a new brake assembly on ebay and the caliper was seized but luckily my caliper was still A1 it was just the master cylinder so I swapped parts around and installed it and bled it. Pads still have a decent bit of life but when I let off the brake it just rubs on the router, I can still ride around, I took it about a mile down the road and pulled over. Never used the rear brake a bit and that router was hot enough to make me flinch. Any suggestions would help

Yeah don't trust anything purchased off FleaBay. It's where everyone goes to get rid of their junk. 😑

It's normal to have a small amount of drag. Wheel shouldn't be tight though. Depending on ambient temp, with a small amount of drag the rotor will get a tad hot to the touch.

One of the many things that DIY-ers commonly screw-up on the rear calipers is the little metal plate that pads rest on. Without that plate, the pads rest on the aluminum carrier. They wear a groove in the carrier, preventing them from backing-off properly.

I believe I have those, I’ll take my caliper back off when it warms up and take a look at it. I was wondering if it could be the bolt on my line(called jerry bolt or something ain’t clicking in my head) being off set and won’t let enough fluid back through the line. Thank you for the response haven’t seen anything about this on YouTube or here or anything

Make sure the reservoir isn't overfilled. Liquids expand and tolerances tighten as parts heat up.

Make sure the caliper slide mounts are well lubed and free.
