So I am really looking forward to putting some mikes on the new 500r this weekend. I picked it up Tuesday night, put the first 9 miles on it and hadn't had a chance to ride since. My concern is the brakes. On the ride home I felt as they were a little "squishy". I felt the stopping power if the front brake was only 50% of what it should be. Seems how I don't know how touchy it should be, I'm just guessing. Did anyone notice the brake getting a bit tighter and stopping power increase after a few miles?

Hi, my brakes where the same they need to be bedded in. Various theories on how that should be done either start/stop a few times or gradual bedding in.. reckon after about 50 miles urban riding mine where done and are now lovely and sharp.

They are good brakes - just need to get past the initial miles!
