I take it no one has any idea as to why the problem with the brakes sticking is occurring after new parts installed.

Which new parts were fitted? Honda offer a SMC rebuild kit which consists of a new piston with associated rubbers but if the barrel of the SMC is scored or damaged it may well still stick.

The more info you can supply the better, saying it's still binding isn't much info to go on, Is it the rear , front, etc etc, It's hard to guess via the internet.

Has Honda said it has done all its going to do for this problem? Or are they still open to doing more work?

Heres what I would do. This is sort of like the first time I rode on a plugged tire.

Ride five miles and stop and see if things are heating up. If they aren't repeat until youre satisfied there isn't going to be a problem.

Of course if you can ride so you don't use the brakes very much, so much the better! Personally I don't ride in traffic where this is necessary.

Get a lot of experience with this situation under your belt. Maybe the brake is dragging but its OK if it drags. As long as it doesn't LOCK.

Yeah I was very nervous riding a plugged tire the first time. A lot of people say don't do it. But I learned to test out the repair each and every time I did it. Now its like nothing.

If it is getting hot back to the drawing board!

Do NOT do this, you are getting idiotic and dangerous advice. If the brake is dragging it will get hotter and hotter till the fluid boils and it will lock at that point.

Do not do it, Echo is a dangerous fool.

Did you receive a recall notice covering brake related components other than those highlighted in Red?

These are the only brake related recalls I have record of.
