Zinc?

I needed to replace the bolts for the brake fluid reservoir (they were stripped out pretty bad by the PO and then I made it worse . I couldn’t find stainless steel ones that were countersunk, but I found some zinc ones. Any concerns with zinc? They won’t rust, but will they corrode?

By "zinc" I assume you mean galvanized. They should be fine, as the MC body is aluminum. Stainless steel screws won't rust, but the aluminum will oxidize if moisture is present. Galvanized bolts can oxidize too, but for this application either would be fine. If the shiny head of the screw looks odd, you can always put a bit of black paint over it.
