I found something interesting with the brake drag on one of my Outlaws.  Long story short, the drag originates in the calipers.

No idea.  That's the way they sit now and that's the way I got them.  The only thing I may try doing is bleeding the front right caliper to see if it has any air in it.

Of course check the pins to see if they are smooth and clean, and make sure the adjustment stop isn't too tight.

Ive heard of people using small springs on the pins to help pull the pads apart, but that might delay your brake response slightly.  It should however make your pads last longer and your pads/fluid/calipers stay allot cooler.  It would probably be ok if you adjusted your caliper stops pretty regularly.
