Since nobody has mentioned the most common reason for the read brake to drag on an older bike I'll chime in. Check to see if there is any wear on the carry pins that hold the pads in place.

That's what he just said:

I tried it and that was not the problem the sliders were tho I took it apart, cleaned it all and its good as new.

Had the same problem with my 02. Tried everything including replacing the pins. Ended up having to rebuild the caliper (lots of crap around the piston). Fixed the problem!
