# 1 name everything you have done to this bike involving anything rear of the fuel tank filler . ANYTHING

 # 2 how long has this problem existed ?

 # 3 are you telling us everything / have you forgotten anything ?

1. All I have done to the bike since I’ve had it is fit some Mistral pipes and fit a new led rear light and indicators. 

2. It’s happened twice now in the last few weeks. 

3. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned everything. 

Cheers.

On a rear stand , pump the brakes about 4 Xs . The wheel will not turn . Break the bleeder screw and see if the wheel spins easier . 

 If it spins easier , the problem is ahead of the caliper . Brake hose , master cylinder or adjustments . 

If there is no difference , the problem is in the caliper .

Actually, this raises a good question: were you able to reproduce the problem off the road? If you put the bike on a rear stand, pump the rear brake a few times and release, does it bind, or can you spin the wheel? If it only happens while riding, it could very well be something else. Sounds like you are on the right track though, replacing seals etc., and you found some corrosion which certainly wasn't helping...
