I replace the rear caliper about 3 years ago and recently the brakes started rubbing really bad. I took the piston out and cleaned it up with 2000 gritt sand paper. I installed new pads and couldn't get any presure to the caliper. So then I replaced the master cylinder last week. Now I have brakes, bur they are still rubbing. What do I need now?

They will have slight rubbing I think normally. Have you followed the manual I assume as far as adjustment? I am still trying to get mine right also.

I dont think you can adjust them? They were rubbing so bad the rotor was glowing red before I replaced the master cylinder and pads. It's not that bad anymore but I can smell them cooking lol. Maybe it will get better as they wear.

No parking brake. I took it off.
I just replaced my brake pads on my 2008 Raptor 700.

The ones I took off were doing like you said yours are doing.

Both the old pad (left) and the new pad (left) as you sit behind the bike, had a tit on the back side. Well there is nowhere on a yamaha for that tit to sit into when you replace the pad, so we used a grinder and removed the tit.

Now the brake pad fits perfectly and my brakes don't grab!
