how heavy are you ??
i have some juicy 7's ...
and I am thinking that there is too much fluid in the lines. The margin of error is too little for pad to rotor contact (i.e. rubbing). Can I take some of the fluid out of the lines and if the pistons are sticking a little can I un stick them with having to re bleed them?
P.S. how much space between the rotors are there supposed to be between pads and rotors anyways?
Push the pads back into the calipers with a medium-large flathead screwdriver and get it to 'stick' between the pads. Take the Torx #7 to the bleed port in the lever and slowly loosen it with a rag. Excess fluid will piddle out.

pull the pads, then push the piston.
juicy's have the worst factory bleed imo.
