I finally got my cylinder bach from the machine shop yesterday and finished building my motor. It started up the first try and seems to run very strong. i did 4 heat cycles on it so far and hvae put about 20 miles on it. I have notices that when you use the back brake it will stick on for a while and it really slows my bike down and im sure its not good for the pads. i did have the rear brake assembly off when i cleaned it. mabee i did something wrong?

Make sure the brake line is not pinched....other than that you may have gotten the caliper hanger spacers on the opposite sides of where they are supposed to go.
