rear brake pedal stuck.. help!

hey guys.. I was out the other morning and had to come down pretty hard on both my front and rear brakes to make a red light. anyway, I took off like normal from the light and felt the ass end swaying a bit and my rear break lever stuck slightly in the downward position. i parked tried to see if i could free the lever but there wasn't much play. I checked both reservoirs and both are topped off. any ideas what could be holding it up? Its a 2011 with less than 600 miles on it. thanks!

This should be a reminder to always ride defensively and be prepared for any situation that happens in front of you. What if the car had to stop for a kid running out in front of them, or some other obstacle. Not sure that the person in front is an idiot because you failed to plan properly...just sayin'.

Forgot to mention.. I pulled the calipers apart from the rotor and my break lever went back to normal but when I'd apply the breaks, the lever would bounce back but the calipers wouldnt and the pads would stay hugging the rotor. I tried pumping the break to see if it would free up the caliper and instead, the lever just became tighter and tighter til it lost all of the play in it and stayed in the downward position. could it just be it needs some lube?

yea no crap take it to the dealer. nothing beats free. well not reall free because you paid for it in the bike somewhere. But no sense in wasting your time and effort when its their problem to solve
