Breaking in new wave rotors and pads....

Hey all,

I just got a set of 'Braking' 330mm wave front rotors and Carbone Lorraine SBK5 pads for my bike.

Apart from fitting the rotors, torquing them properly and fitting the pads, is there anything I need to do before I ride with them? Ie. scuff the pads/rotors????? Or do I just ride as normal?

There are no instructions in the pack and I couldn't find anything on either Galfer's or Braking's websites.

Thanks in advance!

the suppliers of braking discs here recommend you just be careful on the brakes for a while, try and avoid heavy breaking (unless of course you will hit something if you don't!)

Cheers

I've installed mine from Galfer,although I don't think they were carbon pads. Rode for 20 miles and after that everything felt as it should. At first they felt like the pads were made of wood for a few miles.

Re: Breaking in new wave rotors and pads....

yea both have to be worn in properly...regular braking when slowing...to seat the pad material in correctly and not to warp ur rotors....slowly heat them up, not super hard braking where u get a blue ring...then they'll warp...just take it easy for a lil while...the pads you can break in just from goin up and down the street a few times, but the rotors...lil bit longer...
