Well that`s a question I haven`t seen asked before in the 3 1/2 years I have been on this board.
Have you checked a schematic diagram on a dealer site like Bike Bandit, or the down loadable Kaw service manual to see if the bolt is identified and sold separately?

Here is link to the diagram, but the bolt size is not specified. Sorry.

Anybody have a master cylinder off the bike and can check banjo bolt thread size for LD?

I'm about 89.9 % sure they are 10mm X 1.5" threads. But I think they are two different thread sizes too.

Pretty sure all metric fittings are the same diameter and there's like 3 different sizes in American fittings.

As the bike is metric, I'd put my money on them being 10mm...

If someone knows different, fill us in. Sorry, been awhile since I dealt with this.
