Have not had any issues with my brakes on the RZR, but on the Rhino I had to scuff the kingpins really good and add some lithium grease so the pads would slide better. Are you riding a lot of mud/water?

Ya check and make sure no mud has got the sliders binded up.
after that, make sure no brake lines have any kinks in them.... 431114

Wonder if there is any chance something got wedged in the brake caliper area causing it not to release?

Had mine do this yesterday, turned out it is the brace that holds the caliper to the hub, it has 2 rods that go into the caliper thru two rubber boots, it was dirty and would not let the pressure off the pads when you let off the pedal. I took it all apart and cleaned the pins and greased them up good and that fixed it
