Help! Squeaky rear brakes!

01 Hayabusa, & the brakes are fairly new, but an embaressing squeal, so I don't even use them! I'm sure there is a simple solution!
Thanx in advance!

Hi Squeaky!

Maybe you need to be lightly sanded then oiled!

What type of pads did you use?
Most Suzukis with your style of rear caliper will squeal if you use a sintered pad.
If you replace them with an organic compound in the rear it should take care of the problem.
