Should be a standard P8 calliper.

The bike in question will probably be put up for sale in the next few months and so although I'd be happy to wire the pins in as per jpc's pictures if the bike was for my use, I still think that I will look at getting it bushed or as also suggested by jpc, ask my friend thinks it would be easier to turn a new pin. That may be another option. 
I agree that the spring clip does play a significant part in keeping the pins in place. 
 
 
On top of that I have Ducati paddy and BMW Motorworks and even Gutsibits to ask if they have any 2nd hand calipers.

Interesting, I've always had to use a hammer and drift on all of mine to get them out then back in again. In other words, foooking tight.

Yep BMW also used the P8, my R80 had them too.

And ditto tight pins. Big smile
