Brake Rotor Preperation

I am replacing brake pads for the first time on my 900rr. I am not sure what was on it before but im going to be putting EBC HH pads on it. Ive noticed that some people recommend getting the rotors blasted but im trying to do this on a 'budget'. So far i have cleaned them and got most of the old glaze off of the rotors with some scotchbrite and sandpaper. You can still see some of it in certain light, but i think id really have to grind down on them to remove this. Should this kind of preperation allow the pads to 'break in' successfully?

Re: Brake Rotor Preperation

You'll be fine, your staying with a sinisterd pad. If you were changing to an organic pad, you should blast them.

Re: Brake Rotor Preperation

Yep, that should be cool! Remember to bed in the pads by several 60-10 stops and then let the brakes cool for about an hour.
