When I switched to the Pagids, I changed the procedure to the Pagid recommendation that you guys are describing. I'm assuming the higher speeds/more aggressive bedding for the Pagids is necessary because their ideal operating temp is higher than that of the more street-oriented StopTech pads.
I agree. I ran the same pads before with stock brakes and they were easy to bed in just like you're saying.
