Roadstar brake line swap?

Hey everyone just a quick question
I've read on here that the brake line banjo bolt is a m10x1.25, can anyone confirm that?
I am trying to replace the upper brake line on my roadstar 1600, the one that goes from the T fitting the the reservoir so I can get some taller bars on there
The fitting seems standard with other bikes but I am unsure
it looks the same that i had on my shadow except that one ran straight from the reservoir to the caliper since it was a single front disc brake
im thinking if i can find another stock one that fits ill go with that, maybe a yamaha grizzly or something similar

Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Why not go with an aftermarket brake line like Russell, Galfer or Goodridge? They come in varied lengths.

if your keeping the bolt, the thread count wouldn't matter. i think all banjo fittings are 10mm in diameter. did a google search

i did buy a pressure switch once to relocate the brake reservoir and i think it was a 10 x 1.25. i would take the bolt to a hardware store to check pitch. somebody should write this stuff down.
