I think they do. But if you are getting brake drake , have you checked the  brake lines to see if the are swollen in or out to see if they are causing  pressure trap? Are your caliber pistons just dirty or corroded that they are sticking. Is your brake system contaminated ?  All can play into sticking, dragging.

Brake drag on the predators was and still is a huge issue.  So much that I completely removed the front brakes completely from my flat track predator.  I think it was a horrible design right from the factory from day one.  Even as a drag quad setup I still only run a rear brake.  I know when i was looking for options before pulling everything off I was looking at the outlaw as an upgrade.  I don't think you will get away from brake drag on the predator as long as you stick with predator parts.  There were all horrible.

I thought I'd read of people using small springs over the pins to help push the pads apart and reduce drag.
