    So on a ride today and got the rear rotor really effing hot ( blued)
    Touched the damn thing with my glove and my glove smoked ooooops

    The pedal does not do anything now. I did loosen up the thing and went for a ride. The parts all cooled off in 20 mins but did not touch the pedal the rest of the ride

    Could I kill anything in the system ( caliper , master , ) should I replace the rotor

    Everything is probably fine unless the rotor is warped or you cooked the caliper seals. Take it all apart, clean it out, and lube the slide pins on the caliper. Usually when the brake drags like that, it's either from the piston not retracting properly, or the caliper not floating the way it should.

    Just trying to be funny. Guess I was not successful - sorry.

    I would change the break fluid and test it carefully after that.

    I have heard of this being caused by master cylinder, but certainly bleed out with racing fluid
