I have a couple left over from my old brake lines, you're welcome to come pick through them, not sure what size they are.

Since it's a brake system I would just get a new master or caliper. Threaded inserts and cheap fixed just sounds like bad idea when it comes to brakes.

If its for you ZRX Call Keith in parts dept @888-829-2166. If he doesn't have it in stock, he can usually get it 1-2 days. Very cool guy, I've ordered lots of misc hardware from him in the past(speedo cable, head cover bolts, etc) and just went and it it up. Cant remember the name of the dealer, but their out of South Elgin.

Its not a brake system leak. Its an oil line in the case. It comes out the bottom and returns in the side of the case. The bolt i found in the motor was very retarded, I can't believe someone would do this to a bike. I will try to post a pic.

Its hard to see but the bolt was flatened on four sides, and its longer than the correct bolt. i was able to grind my tap down to a bottoming tap and get 10mm more thread. So i made an even longer bolt and was able to torque it.
