You can use a brillo pad and elbow grease, a flex hone drill bit with flex hone oil (easier), or you can install racing pads and drive on the street for a weekend and their abrasive behavior at low temps will take down the transfer layer. Note that this only works with racing pads and only at low temps. Street pads will just go straight to adherent friction and you won't get this effect.

I just pulled the pads and they're definitely glazed so I'm going to replace the fronts today. There is no layer on top of the rotor that I can see though, is it supposed to be visible? I can also not feel a difference from touch.
