Front wheel is tight

Changed my front rubber, and now I'm having a hard time rotating the tires. It feels like the calipers are squeezing the rotors.... Does anyone have this problem?

My bike is an 06 600rr.

Take off the calipers and see if the wheel rotates freely. If so re install one of the calipers and see if the wheel rotates freely. If so install the other calipers and see if the wheel still rotates freely. if it is still grabby, loosen the axle pinch bolts and axle bolt. Re-tighten to spec. If that clears it up put on a helmet and take it for a test drive
