I was throwing some supermoto wheels my friend let me borrow onto my bike and had to switch out the caliper mounting bracket to fit the larger brakes. When I pulled my caliper off, I noticed that the dowel that the caliper floats on above the pad pin had stripped out the threads in the bracket and had made the end of the hole an oval. It must have been moving a fair amount under braking.
I figured I could put an insert into the bracket to get the threads back, but I can't find the thread size anywhere in the service manual. I was wondering if anyone knew the size, or a better way to fix the part, or if it is hosed? Thanks for the help
