Where can I get a banjo bolt?

I'm working on the K12RS but as it's the same part, I'll post here hoping to get a quicker response.

I rounded the banjo bolt on the shock adjuster trying to remove to add oil. The parts fiche says that I can't buy that part separate from the shock assembly. Can it be cross referenced to a brake or clutch banjo bolt?

That one is going to be tough Joe. Carefully cut a slot in it and use a large flat blade screw driver or file it down to the next wrench size (I have done desperate things like this before). May be able to find one at a shop the does hydraulic work.

I'm sure I can get this one out, it's not too bad yet. More worried about replacing it. I find it interesting that you can get the bolts for the clutch system but not this one. I would think one of the other ones on the bike would work. I suppose I can take this one out and take it to the dealer to see if they have any of the other ones in stock to match.

My line leaked a little at the banjo bolt and I tried to find a replacement washer - dealer said none were offered within the system.

Still leaks a little.
