I'm about to install these pads with SV calipers on my Vee thanks to the good advise found here.
Just wondering if anyone went thru the trouble of heat cycling/bedding in these pads. Is it a good idea or not needed?
If you did it, please describe the process...how many hard stops from what speed, cool down, repeat?
I have an old tire on the front that would be fun to roast if it would be good for my new brakes.

Why not check and see what EBC suggests?

"Bedding in Procedures with for Street use.
Worn discs or rotors dramatically extend bed in time and will reduce brake effect severely until pads bedded in. Ride SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY after installing new brakes until you are satisfied brakes are performing to your total satisfaction.

Bedding in procedure for Road Race use.
Please note ….There is NO WARRANTY on any EBC product used in Racing.
To bed in brakes with new rotors, undertake this in a practice session and allow 20 medium speed "snubs" at 10 second intervals scrubbing off speed from 90 MPH to 60 MPH followed by 10 snubs taking speed from 110 MPH to 60 MPH again with 10 second intervals. This will avoid rotor pick up. If rotors are pre -conditioned against sintered pads and perfectly flat, bed in time for PADS ONLY can normally be achieved within two warm up laps with 7-10 snubs from 110 MPH to 60 MPH. Bed in time depends on rotor condition, allow longer bed in for even slightest dishing of rotors. If you have previously used carbon based pads you MUST Scratchpad or sand rotors lightly to remove carbon coating.

Bedding in for Moto X use
Is 10-12 slowdowns in clean dry conditions on discs in an undished and unscored condition, worn or grooved discs/rotors extend bed in time dramatically."
