2007 GSXR 600 rear brake Floater Pin???

My buddy has an 07 GSXR 600. Yesterday, we were at Javi's getting his oil changed and we noticed that he was missing a bolt on his rear break calipers. someone said it's called a floater pin. does anyone know where we can get one, or if any of the shops on here has one in stock let me know.

here a picture of it ...

yep, that would be an important part of your braking system. luckily he's missing the one on the rear brake.

ITS NOT A MISSING BOLT!.. looks like a pin that has an allen head on it.. If you use the proper allen wrench you can unscrew it the pin comes out... this makes it easier for you to replace the pads, rather than taking apart the whole caliper off the mounting brackets and whatnot.

from looking at it.. the next time you replace the rear pads all you need to do is remove the bottom bolt holding the caliper on the mount and then just take out that pin using a allen wrench. the pads will come out and u can compress but besure to loosen the bleeder and have a catch rag/bottle over the bleeder while you recompress the piston.
