To get it as free as possible....after you are sure rams are retracting(there will always be some drag) leave fork legs a little loose in clamps(not much) insert axle and see if it as drawn tight draws the whole works in alignment---might work

Another trick to get get things for sure pointing the way they should--- put bike on ground, axle a little loose, fork legs just a little backed off----hold bike with front brake stuff might self align as you bounce it up and down.

BigBird,

I think some sound is normal, but I agree that it probably should rotate more freely than that. Did you check it again after the ride? Maybe they just needed to self-adjust a little.

Also, did you follow that tightening sequence on the front axle and its pinch bolts (involves some bouncing like John mentioned)? If that were a little off I could maybe see it causing a little extra drag (although you'd probably get other symptoms, too). I forgot that when I did mine, and had to go back and loosen/re-tightened it later; I felt like it made a little difference in the overall feel, but that might have just been in my head...

Well, maybe they're okay (I'd check mine to compare if my jack weren't buried in the shed and somewhat inaccessible). A few miles on the highway should tell you one way or the other - if you have to drag your shoes to stop, then you'll know they were grabbing affraid

just ride , it's normal to have some drag. As you ride the shoes will heat up and move the pistons back further. The shoes always touch the disk. Thus some drag.

1) Double check wheel position (as suggested already)

2) Change the brake fluid.
Changing the brake fluid stopped a lot of rubbing for me.

3) I remember reading a FEW rare situations where the disk brake warped from overheating and needed to be replaced ... but I would exhaust all possibilities before replacing the disk brake.
