2008 Kingpin 8 Ball. The 5 mm hex pin is stripped. Can I order the pin only or do I have to buy the entire caliper?
If you buy a factory genuine brake pad kit, the pin is included. The stock Nissin pads aren't the best available, but the replacement pin can be a lifesaver. Assemble with antisieze on the thread, don't overtighten.
Some Kawasaki ones fit (oops, could be wrong here, does the 3008 model have Brembo or Nissin caliper?)

Kawasaki for sure fit the Nissan on cross bikes they use same pin on several designs. Pretty sure Honda Nissan caliper pins are also same but I haven't got with one of my Honda friends to check yet.

Best bet just buy cheap kit that includes a new pin if you can't find it on any parts diagram. Use good pads though. Depending on how much pin itself costs you might come out ahead buying cheap pads and tossing them.
