05.5 ktm 950 ADV rear caliper over heating / locking up

Hey Guys,

Its been a couple weeks with this 'new to me' beast. Great bike! But with all bikes some quirks to work out.

On a few dirt roads / gravel roads the rear tire has locked up!
Don't notice it much on any light trails - maybe that's just cause I am not using it much.... ?
And pavement of course it doesn't seem to lock up - but overheats for sure.

I was told there was a warped rotor in the bikes recent past - perhaps this is the cause.

I did some searching and came up with a few threads and this info for instance:

I understand there was a previous TSB that dealt with a 'fading rear brake'? this is the opposite. Also to note it locks up by barely touching the pedal.

My plan was to get this kit go through the steps and essentially rebuild the system and bleed it and see how it goes??

any other suggestions??
