Help with rear brake

Okay, so I put the rear caliper back on my '02 919, and after hitting the lever a few times the piston won't go back in. What is that about? Could it be a problem with my master cylinder?

Put it back on after what. Tire change, new lines, new pads?

Sorry, I guess that would help. I took the tire off to change the rear sprocket.

And you hit the brake lever without the rotor between the pads?

No, I hit it with the rotor between the pads. It just kept clamping and getting tighter, but wouldn't release. I opened the bleeder valve a little and tried to push the pad and piston in, and that didn't work. Actually , I got it fixed, now. That's why it's taken me so long to post replies. I finally managed to pull the caliper off the rotor(It was pretty rough on the rotor). So, I took a C-Clamp and pushed in on the piston and on the outside of the caliper and opened the bleeder valve. I heard and felt a little pop inside the caliper and the piston went in and some air and then fluid came out of the bleeder. I guess somehow the seals got screwed up and moved around? That's all I could think of.
