WTF?? Rear Tire Won't Turn

I replaced my rear tire today, as I have done many times. However, when I assembled everything, the brakes seem to grab the brake rotor to the point of where the rear wheel is difficult to turn.

I have taken everything apart to see several times to see what is happening. Anyone else have this problem? Suggestions?

Press pistons back into caliper, will help confirm whether it's the brake dragging.

Did that. Pistons go in fine. Wheel spins free. As soon as I pump rear pedal a few times, brakes drag... too tightly.

Wheel, brake rotor and optical disc is not warped. Axle spacer and washer in correctly.

Next suspect would be master cylinder, or modulator/ABS system if so equipped.

Only has 20K miles on bike. Shouldn't go bad that soon. Everything worked properly prior to me removing wheel.
Logically will go down the "list". Still suspect something out of alignment or missing a washer???

Read that thread. Unfortunately improper placement of the pads is not the problem. Next step is take the caliper assembly apart.

BlueThunder: I would never have suspected that my problem was improper assembly of my brake pad, either....but that's what it was. I can't even describe what went together differently the second time around, but it definitely fixed my problem, which is exactly like the problem you are describing. I hope you sort it out. It can't hurt to take the pads out and put them back in again. That's a 5 minute attempt versus disassembly of your caliper, which worked before you removed the wheel, right?

Absolutely! I would rather reinsert the pads than rebuild a brake caliper. I will try it again... I know its something simple!

I had an issue like that when i changed rears, there is a clip that I thought went on the sides of the brakes. It does not, it wedges into the top of the caliper and acts as a spacer for the pads. I actually had to ask the stealership about that one, uggg
