Hey all, just received my Black magic brakes and new Rotors. Any advice or tips on the install from those who have them ? Plan to do it this weekend and any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Break them in like the instructions say, get better as you drive it.

Yep just pay careful attention to the well-written break-in instructions which are key to getting them to perform up to their full awesome potential.

He doesn't need to flush his brake lines to install new brake pads.

It says in the instructions supplied with the brakes to flush out the end of the lines before compressing the calipers to fit new pads. I believe it says this process is to reduce the chance of sticky calipers.

Not really different from others it's just the breakin period. Install is the same as normal.
