Brake rubbing?

Recommended Posts

I was riding my cr250 today and I heard a noise like the rear brakes were rubbing my rotor. The pads are pretty worn. when I push the bike all i hear is a loud rub sound on like 1/8 of the rotor.I spread the pads apart with a screwdriver and it stopped. After I spread them apart if I use the brakes again they don't spread back apart far enough so it wont make the noise. Could it be a worped rotor or the pads.

Classic warped rotor. Check mounting hardware first before ordering new rotor. Also ensure caliper pins are lubed properly allowing caliper to float without binding.
