Pad pin removal on rear brake caliper?

Has anyone successfully removed the pad pin when replacing brake pads? I'm reluctant to try and force it out because I'm having trouble finding out what the actual looks like on its own, whether it's threaded, etc.

I'm on a 2016 750.

Appreciate any help! Thanks.

Did you try spraying rust penetrant on the pins where they slide through? Use a small hammer an tap on them. I have has to do that on cars. I am assuming you removed the Cotter keys first. If they're stuck, Get a new set from Harley. Put a little brake grease on them. The Pads ride on it.

My 15 is different. They have an Allen head and are threaded.
