I installed a new CoreMoto stainless-steel brake line on my 2019 KX450. The bike has 14hrs on it. Before the install, the wheel spun freely. After install, it has a ton of drag. Almost no "free spin". I checked to make sure I don't have too much fluid, It's right at the line. I checked the clamp on the fork guard, it was tight, so I backed it off. No luck there. Any ideas? I'm not sure what else to look for.

Thanks!

push pistons all the way into calipers with the res cap off, then preceded to tap line/caliper and bleed it.

I've been running core lines on mine haven't had any problems with the front. The rear is what most people had trouble with including me. I have both working good now.

I got it to work. What problems were people having with the rear?

Same thing dragging. I removed the heat guards from the rear pads they pressed unevenly.
