Sounds like you didn't bed the pads in correctly. As TMax stated, you're going to have to brake really hard with them a few times until you can get enough of the pad material bedded into the rotor. If you have time this is a REALLY informative read on brakes. It clears the air about a few myths.

If you think the squeaking is bad, wait until it delaminates.

Does your brake pads have the metal clips that clip on to the back of the pads? My suzuki does and I accidentaly forgot to put them back on to the front brakes and now im dealing with a squeak issue, same as you, i need to take them back off, put the metal clips back onto the back of the pads and im sure it will go away.

ok did you happen to apply molybdenum grease to the back side of the pad? i know grease is never suggested for brake components on motorcycle brake components, but i do a very small amount on the back side of the pad to prevent issues just like this.
