One of my front caliper pad hanger pins was so tight that by the time I applied torque to the thin walled hex it stripped. I ended up having to take the 2 halves of the caliper apart and apply a torch to it to finally free it.
Does anyone know of a source for just the pin. All the parts diagrams show only the whole caliper as a unit. There are parts places in the U.K. but I cannot find any info for the U.S.
Am I the only one who’s buggered up one of these?

Guessing 2014 XR. I bet if you take that pin to a local auto parts store, they can find a suitable replacement. Brake pad guide pin?
