For the Yeti, there are 3 models of front brake systems (1ZA, 1ZE, 1ZF) and 3 models for the rear (1KD, 1KJ, 1KS). The model numbers are PR codes so you may find yours on your vehicle information sticker in your handbook. Also your vehicles date of manafacture may be important. As for pads I'll be giving Brembo Sports a try in the future.

Just for interest I found this in a Brembo catalogue. It might be helpful to you.

It is very important to follow proper brake bedding procedure following installation. This is necessary not only for optimum performance of the system, but also to avoid onset of judder (vibration felt through brake and steering). When fixing pads to used discs, the discs must be in good condition and be within the original manufacturer's manufacturing tolerances. In case of any doubt, new discs should be fixed. Be aware that with new brake system components, the braking performance will be reduced until the pads and discs are fully bedded. Use extreme caution while driving the vehicle under these conditions. If done on public roads obey all traffic laws and do not endanger yourself or others. The purpose of this procedure is to gradually increase the temperature in the components without thermal shock and to mate the brake pad and disc friction surfaces, generating a uniform transfer layer.

Perform at least 20 brake applications using medium deceleration (approximately 60% of maximum) starting from 60mph and slowing to 20mph. Do not come to a stop. Accelerate back to the starting speed allowing 20-30 seconds before beginning the next brake application. After completion, drive the vehicle for at least 5 minutes with little or no braking in order to adequately cool the components.

When it can be done legally, or on a closed circuit, a secondary bedding operation is beneficial. Repeat the above procedure for 5 to 10 brake applications increasing the starting speed to 80mph and increasing the deceleration rate to 80% of maximum.After completion, drive the vehicle for at least 10 minutes with little or no braking in order to adequately cool the components.

The system is now ready for normal use. This entire procedure must be complete before driving the vehicle as normal. It is especially important that this process is completed before any extended same-speed driving is done (i.e. Motorway travel). Failure to follow these instructions greatly increases the likelihood of judder development.

Very interesting stuff from Brembo. As regards which pads to use I was wondering if anyone had discovered a "Quieter" pad than the originals which are just about the most noisy I have experienced on any car.

That's odd mine are virtually silent, don't know if it makes any difference but my callipers are Bosch.
