Default Rear brake locking up

i just installed a new rotor and pads on my 2007 rhino. It works great until the first high speed run. Then the breaks drag and eventually the rotor is glowing red. So now that i've ruined my new rotor and pads what else can it be? I have already taken the piston and caliper apart and it is not binding, and I have adjusted the ebrake manually on the caliper (allen screw w/ locknut) . I read somewhere that the ebrake is self adjusting. Any ideas?

Did the new rotor warp. Mine gets pretty darn hot
I think it is just how they are, I've heard of plenty of fires that started at a hot rear rotor when debris get caught up in there. Search rhino fire and 99% of the time it started at the rear rotor.
I added a fire extinguisher because of this


just reread the topic, If they are locking up, I have no idea
