Rear Caliper

So pleased I don't desperately need to change pads. Pins have completely seized and had to remove caliper to get access to even attempt removal. Some penetrating fluid and gentle persuasion....and SNAPPED right off..... Why don't the use the same threaded pins like the front calipers. Only reason i'm not thoroughly pissed off i'm gonna get it refurbished and coated black to match my Nissin on the front. Will split and drill out hopefully. Anybody tried converting to threaded pin by tapping the body and shortening a front pin?

That's bad luck. If you cant get it out you could always get another caliper off ebay. Do you have access to a pillar drill?

A 12 meet woud be nice but too far for me with no sitter and i'll be totally honest.....bike is gonna be a 100% dry weather bike and generally I only do short mental rides of around 60 miles.
