I just installed new rotors and brake pads. After taking it out for a short ride to bed them in a little, it seems that there are grooves in the pad or low spots. When looking at the wear on the rotor the middle of the pad isn't touching so there's a line going around the rotor in between the wear area. I didn't have enough time to completely bed them in. Do I just need to wear them in more? Thanks

If you leave them they will wear to match the contours of the rotor, its normal.

It may be worth putting a straight edge against the rotor to check that its flat, you may be able to get some replacements if they aren't.

Yea I'll check the rotor with a straight edge today. That was the rear rotor that had that problem. The front has very slight lines on the rotor where it don't touch. I'm sure that will go away after more riding. And everything is one the way it came off. Thanks
