Default EBC break in

Replacing my front pads with EBC. I used EBC on m6 Honda and took about 200 miles to break in. Recommendations?

I didn't do anything special. They started working quickly but I do ride in city traffic so maybe that sped things up for me.

If you swiped them a few times on sandpaper and cleaned off the dust, then cleaned the discs with brake cleaner or alcohol, you're good to go. Do some hard braking to seat them in and you're golden. Each time I drop new EBC HH pads in, I notice a huge improvement right off.

I am sure others will disagree but I do not like my EBC HH pads and plan on putting another set of OEM's or another brand on this fall. The things are noisy as hell and sound like a swarm of cicadas when you get on the brakes, especially from higher speeds. I've got about 1000 miles on mine so far and the noise has let up a little but not much. More noticeable when the brakes are hot than when cool as well. The OEM's do not stop as well but not bad enough not to go back to them IMO.

I have the same noise with the EBCs. However, mine started with the previous set of pads, a cheap set from D2Moto. I thought it would go away with a 'good' set of pads, but nope.

I've read that the EBC pads make noise, mine make no sound at all.

I love that sound and the urgency it may convey to those in your path.
