    I profusely apologize Bionic.....I'm an older guy still riding stand-up....but I'm not up on the younger lingo. Admittedly, I'm a little embarrassed but what does "GI" and "same, same" mean ? I feel like a fool.

    LOL.....I was thinking too deeply into it. Thinking to myself what does GI mean in terms of jet ski carbs ? My bad....of course I know what you mean as it relates to hooks and the military. That all said....what are the banjo bolts in the photo you provided ? All 440 bolts ? All 550 bolts ? Or a mix of the two ? I couldn't tell because the lighting in the photo only caught one of them real well...so nothing to reference/compare with the others. Thanks

    Thanks again Brotha for the lesson on banjo bolts. It's good to see that the part is still widely available for purchase....Kaw part # 92003-521.

    As an after-thought, I guess technically you could use a 440 bolt on a 550 hull application because the fuel would simply get restricted at the carb and then restricted at the rev limiter. But perhaps if you wanted the rev limiter to have more fuel available for its intended purpose by the design engineers (if the rev limiter was still in operation) maybe you wouldn't want to restrict fuel at the carb.

    Thanks man....you have been far too kind and patient with me in providing info I did not know after 30 years in this game we all love so much. Turns out I do have a 440 banjo bolt in my spare parts bin. But thanks for the offer and thanks again for your time. Kev
