Rear Brake Squeal

I recently replaced all the brakepads on my 03 GT. All was fine for the first 100 miles and then the rear brake started to squeal just as the bike was coming to rest. The new pads were from Moto-Bins, Ferodo FBD 108's, as recomended by Moto-Bins. I removed, cleaned and re-fitted them with Copper Grease on the rear faces, as normal, but there was no change. As I also had some BMW pads that I had been given some years ago, brand new and still boxed, Part No 34 (? can't read it ) 1 454 724, I have just fitted these as an alternative, but the brake still squeals exactly the same.
I had no problem with the old pads that were fitted to the bike when I bought it, so can only assume that the rear brake is very pad specific, and I have been sold the wrong spec ones by Moto-Bins and the BMW ones were also wrong.
Has anyone else had this problem ? What are the right ones ?

Don't know if this will help you or not. The parts fiche at Hammersley BMW ( lists # 34-21-7-657-025 as the pads for your bike.

Wrong Pads

Thanks a bunch for that. I didn't realise what a fabulous site that is for finding part numbers and I was able to confirm that the pads I fitted were for a K100LT, which is the bike my brother had sold shortly before he gave them to me. I will be fitting the right ones shortly which, hopefully, will cure the problem.
