I just had a shop put some new pads on my rear brake. After I ride the bike and never touch the rear brake the rotor is warm to hot. This means it is dragging a little. Should I be worried about premature wear or forget about it. I had this same thing on a BMW and the mechanic said it is normal for the pad to be barely touching the rotor. I`m not so sure. Also, he didn´t resurface the rotor. I´m wondering if I could do this while the rotor is on the bike or remove it and do it properly or just let the pads seat in the old grooves. I´ve seen machines that resurface rotors on front wheel drive cars while still attached to the hub.

The rotor isn't thick enough to resuface. If you ride in sand, or mud alot you could be to thin on a rotor in just two sets of pads. For new rotors a good place is:
