G'day all!
Any one know the banjo bolt thread pitch for the R6? As want'a order a couple of back up's, & don't want'a pop one out, & then air bleed just to get the pitch, when this info is in some R6 punters head out there, who is nice enough to pass it along?

Have you tried somewhere like Partzilla or even Revzilla's OEM parts section? Any bolts I need that I want to be certain are the right size I always get from places that would have OEM/corresponding part numbers. They're usually super cheap too.

Banjo bolt? Had to look that up. Those look like washers for the braking system. This for the braking system? Aftermarket part/design? My front master cylinder has two holes IIRC. Why or how could this part be lost?

M10 1.25. Damn thems fast. Yes, front master is a "dual" and uses 3 copper crush washers. The wheel caliper/ rear master is a "single" with 2 crush washers per as in 11 total crush washers if complete brake system disassembly. I bought a bag of 50 as Japan cars are also M10. Not worth sanding and trying to reuse unless a side if the road repair.

Thanks for the confirmation. Haven't had to take the rear master cylinder apart. The bolts don't seem like a "wear item" or anything that is in any way prone to getting lost. Doubt they'd seize either. Any idea what he meant by "don't want'a pop one out"? Possible dialect/translation difference of expression?

If you remove the bolt, the brake hose like a fuel line, will leak fluid from the hose and then needs to be properly bled. I had the banjos and bleed nipples rust on my vehicle that never moved in 30+ years in aluminum calipers.
