Thanks Dennis,
I'm guessing there are no After Market shops that sell new ones? I hate to buy a used one off ebay and have the same problem...

Yes Ken,
I can bleed the brakes, but I believe the small relief port in the master cylinder has a problem although I have run a small piece of wire through it? Brakes are still dragging, and I'm out of ideas at this point other than replacing the master cylinder..

Before you replaced the seals, are you sure you completely cleaned out the grooves that they fit into? Absolutely no white gook in there? Also did you lube the seals, the pistons and their places in the caliper with brake fluid? I had a similar situation once, and that was the problem.

Yes PaPete,
I did all of that.
Thanks

Had a 750 supersport that had all calipers rebuilt.when they reinstalled calipers on rear they left the shim washers off one caliper bolt it caused caliper to drag took weeks to figure out .

The problem might be the master cylinder. There is a spring that makes the piston return all the way. If there is an issue with that spring the piston won't return and it can block that little hole keeping pressure on the brakes. Other things can cause the issue. Are you sure the pedal is returning to the top. The pedal must move free in it's travel all the way to the top and the spring must be in good shape. See attached.
Might try to ride the bike until the brakes start to drag. Put the bike on the center stand to see if you can rotate ech wheel by hand. If you can't rotate then try to open bleeders. Do you get pressure and the wheels rotate free now? Then you know it is a master cylinder, hydraulic or hanging pedal issue.

Is the front also dragging? The rear and the front, don't remember left or right, are linked together. If both are dragging the problem would be the master cylinder, if only the rear it may be the rubber hose.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

To add to what Dave said also possible pedal linkage problem if it does not return all the way. Anything is possible on a 33 year old machine. Especially if it sat for some time.

I had that problem once, the foot brake had rust on the post not allowing it to return fully, figured it out by putting te under pedal and lifting it
