    might indicate a jammed brake piston or uneven rotor.
    working the rear piston is such a hassle and takes alot of patience lol.
    from your description, it sounds like it is not releasing fully or releasing too slow.
    i had the same thing about 9 years ago..right after that, I found out that the rear brake was going to be jammed (after changing new pads).

    try looking at 2 areas:

    1. Rear brake caliper assy (pin, piston, pads, cables); check out the condition.
    2. Rear brake rotors (uneven wear , warped)

    good luck

    Okay great thank you, I also hear a quiet scraping noise when I brake coming to a stop and especially going downhill the noise will continue after releasing the brake.
    What should I look for in the caliper and what should I do?
    Also can you tell if a rotor is warped?

    Spin the disc and see how it turns. If warp, as it spins can see it wave left and right
