Hey Ty,

You should close, or post on your other thread about the front end wobble. Did you not notice you were a bolt short when you put it back on? Glad you got it figured out.

exact opposite of this...

to bunish (prob the same as bed) my hawk pads told me to hit 35 and brake fairly moderately 5-6 times. then at about 45 brake hard 3-4 times

found it

Burnishing Instructions

1. After installing new brake pads, make 6 to 10 stops from approximately 30-35 mph applying moderate pressure.
2. Make an additional 2 to 3 hard stops from approximately 40 to 45 mph.
3. DO NOT DRAG BRAKES!
4. Allow 15 minutes for brake system to cool down.
5. After step 4 your new pads are ready for use.

riding them or really softly braking for long periods... you want them to heat quick and then cool, dragging will make them heat slowly and make them soft
