In order to bed new pads. Go out an get the bike up to about 30mph apply the brakes but dont stop completely, keep going and this will cool the pads. This helps get the most out of the pads. Id do a few 30mph rolls and then up the speed after you let them cool and do it a few more times.

Id take it easy on them for upwards of 400 miles according to EBC. are these double HH pads?

"The right way to bed these pads in is to accelerate to about 35-40, then brake very hard (don't flip over or lose the front, but hard). Come almost to a stop but not quite, and repeat. Do this about 10 times in rapid succession, and that's it"

I don't really know anyone that goes through that much just to bed the brakes. At the track i take it easy for a lap then increase braking over the next lap. After that it's pretty much regular pace. I have never had a problem with doing this. I do take a green scratch pad to the rotors first to make sure that they are clean. Must manufacturers recomendations tend to be on the safe side, just like engine brake in periods.
