Let's go back to the original complaint and break it down.
You may ask, "Why are my disc brakes dragging?" A more important question to ask is "Why don't disc brakes normally drag?"
The why is relatively simple. When the brakes are applied the pads bear against the discs. Releasing the lever creates a low pressure in the system, helping the square section piston seals that deform when the pistons are pushed toward the discs to relax, pulling the pistons away from the discs by an average of 0.13mm (.005"). This requires a passage for the displaced fluid to return to the reservoir. Therein probably lies your problem. Read on.
When the brake lever is fully out the primary piston seal uncovers a small drilling in the master cylinder wall, called the compensating port, which connects to the reservoir. Retracting the caliper pistons pushes the fluid back up the lines to the master cylinder compensating port to the reservoir. This assumes the port is not blocked either by debris, or the brake lever. The clue you gave about feeling better :
I thought it was my brake lever causing causing it because when i adjusted them or loosened it up and snugged it back it would not stick so much temporarily.
may point us in the right direction.
Loosening the lever allowed it to move back sufficiently to allow the piston to finally clear the port and allow the fluid a path back to the reservoir. The caliper pistons retract and all is good until the lever is tightened down, and the symptom returns.
The Holmesian conclusion is the brake lever is either an inaccurately made aftermarket unit that is holding the piston too far in, or the stock lever has a bit of debris trapped between the brake light switch and the paddle that actuates it, again closing the port and causing your problem.
