    I changed out my rear brake pads (they were gone disc had ground into the caliper.

    I split the caliper to dress the alum. Mess that the disc made when it dug into the caliper.

    I reassembled with the little spacers and bled the rear brake. I added dot 5 brake fluid, wich was blue in color. The fluid that was in the res. was clear.

    Went for a ride with my bro, brake worked fine but could smell it at a stop and the disc was super hot, couldn't feel any drag but it was eating pads.

    Anyone run across this before?

    You're Pistons could be seized in the calipar not letting them return. Or there is pressure not releasing in the line or the calipar assembly is mounted incorrectly. Check it out closely.

    Crap, been so long ago I cant remember. Check with Performance Machine. They are OEM. I wanna say kits are like $12-20. Pull the numbers off the caliper and you will get the correct kit. Pull the pistons and buff them shiny, clean the cylinder walls, install new seals, Easy peasy...

    FWIW, I have 2 sets of 0052-3002. I ordered the wrong set the first time and they told me to just keep these. So if ya find that's the number you need, lemme know and they are yours.

    (The kit number for the Pit is 052-2400, if this helps)

    1. Oil boils, right? What remains in that gap of air? Water.
    2. Which is heavier, oil or water? Water.
    3. Magnetically speaking, we cannot separate heat from chemRe you move those molecules.
    4. What happens next is water lands under this 4-square looking rubber ring called a quad ring.
    5. Not changing the oil every so often, not like now since the bike came out 12 years ago give or take.
    6. There is a chemical like crystal formation that takes up the space in the groove around the quad ring.
    7. The quad has memory so it wrinkles with the piston is the one direction. Piston pulls back; for every action.
    8. The crystallization under the quad ring cannot let the square move back to square, pull the piston back etc.
    9. The piston stays where it's at upon pressure release, pad has no way to retract from the disc, stays where it's at, rubs the material off, heats disc.
