For your new braking system to operate at its performance capacity, it is important to'break-in' the rotors and brake pads. This procedure is called bedding and it is encouraged you follow the steps below upon completion of the installation.
Find a safe and open area where you will be able to accelerate and stop safely multiple times. Accelerate to 35mph (55km/h) and aggressively stop to 5mph (8km/h) in rapid successions without letting the brakes cool down and without stopping. Accelerate to 35mph (55km/h) and this time, moderately stop to 5mph (8km/h) in rapid successions without letting the brakes cool down and without stopping. Drive around for approximately 6-8 minutes at a moderate speed without excessively using the brakes or coming to a complete stop.For Elite XDS & Geomet OE (our coated rotors), and 3 extra minutes. Once this is complete, stop the vehicle and allow the brakes to cool down. This should take about 40 minutes or so.
