your pistons would have been pushed back to get the new pads in..


take it on a slow ride and keep dabbing the rear brake (not the dual carraigeway, a quiet road) the pads should move back out and settle to their norm position,


did you change them? did you undo the pipe? if not then its just the pads that need settling, otherwise you may need to bleed the fuid and replace with new, as you have air in the line.
