Default Re: Rear brake still sticking after servicing.

Wow, crazy. TBH I haven't read the whole thread. When the caliper is off the bike, can you pump the lever and see the piston retract even a slight bit? And does the piston move back with assistance easily? Wondering if a seal might be on the wrong side out or something? Long shot, but might be the case.

As far as I know the seals fitted were square. Should they be tapered, and if so which way out?
