Mags, I just serviced my pin also with the rear tire change. Similar to yours it shows some wear, you could feel it with your finger nail but I didn't notice that it was out of round. There was a bit of moly on the pin and the needle bearing felt good. I wiped out as much of the old moly as I could and lubed the bearing up real well with a high wax grease, this bearing is not subject to any speed so a grease that will not squeeze out should work fine. The pin slipped back in effortlessly.
