I just got my front tire back on the wing and noticed a clear sound of the brake pads rubbing against the rotor. I have solid pressure on both the hand brakes and rear brakes. the right side brakes I had on the bike wore out after 4000 miles. is there an adjustment or should I put some anti-sieze on the pistons in the caliper to get them to move freely. I was able to get the pistons back flush with the caliper by using some pliers to push it back.

I pulled out the gunk that was once considered brake fluid. changed it out took off the caliper cleaned it out and finally freed up the pistons. One piston would not move until I worked on it. everything seems all good now. rode it around a little after juicing up the brakes and things are good WITH THE EXCEPTION of me breaking one of my reservior bolts.....its got one bolt holding it in and there is good pressure. Going over to a buddies shop to get the old bolt out (he has all the tools to do it). pretty much alls well ends well.
