Re: EBC Brake Pads discoloration
you didn't prep the rotors and you didn't bed the new pads in. they got hot. go get a red 3m scotch brite pad or 120 grit sand paper, or buy a rotor hone, sand the rotors to remove all the old pad material. it doesn't take a lot of scrubbing. lay a piece of 120 sandpaper on a good flat surface. rub the pads on it in a figure 8 until you remove that burned look. go ride the bike and bring it to several moderate slow downs from about 50 mph to about 10 mph. allowing the pad to cool down enough between. after a few of these you should feel the pads increase in grip. after that they should be ready to rock and roll.
now depending how fast you are, they may not work too well after they get some heat from track riding. if you're fast as **** you'll have to move up to race pads. these pads are only for street and medium pace track day riders that are mostly coasting into the corners.
I prefer Ferodo brand of pads myself. I'm not super fast but I do weigh close to 200 so my brakes get a decent workout. their ST pads are like these EBC pads but they seem to be able to control heat and never fade.
