My front disk brakes are locking up, I adjusted my rear brakes and bleed the system now my front brakes are locking up. I then pulled my metering valve and cleaned it up. still locking up as soon as i start it up and step on the brakes they lock up and don't release. any help is appreciated.

Either master cylinder not clearing the port on release or more likely the front rubber brake lines need to be replaced. Probably would not hurt to replace the front calipers also.
