New brake pads right before the track

Anyone throw on some new brake pads right before a track day? Results? I need to throw on some double H up front and organic in the back with no bed-in time before my track day. Bad idea?

Re: New brake pads right before the track

ride around the paddock with the lever pressed a bit, then take it easy for the first session or two...

It's normal, think about all the race bikes that never see street, they are broken in at the track.

Unless it's completely to the backing and needs to be changed anyway, don't bother replacing your rear brake pad for the track; you wont be using it.

+1

I still have factory brake pads on my rear. Never use your rear brake on track except for running off track in grass
