Soft brake pedal

Some info on my brakes: ebc slotted/dimpled rotors with HAWK HPS pads.

Replaced my brakes about 2 weeks ago, drove ~400km to ~500 km (taking it easy). So tonight I decided to bed them, using the 100-5 method 9 times (did it twice).

My vibrations went away, but the pedal still feels a little soft? Pedal travel is also quite high before I start braking. I thought the pedal would feel firmer after I bedded the brakes in? Should try the process once more?

I had the brake fluid flushed right after I installed the brakes too btw.

check your fluid level and try bleeding your brakes again to remove any air thats left in there.
