2014 DL1000 Front Caliper Pin Machined Step?

Hi Fellows

I just changed my front brake pads and my pad pins seem to have a slight machined step of slightly less diameter in the center of the pin about half an inch long on all of them.
It does not look like wear, but I am a little concerned.
Has anyone noticed this?

Yes and I am sure it's normal.

Thanx, Stu

I did some more research online and it does appear to be normal.
Thanx, again.

It is normal, When I replace the pads I clean the pin sometimes with a wire wheel on the grinder then put a very light coat of grease on it.
