Oil Sump Drain Bolt Size

I've looked around without much luck, does anyone know what the sump drain bolt size is? Was hoping to order a pre-drilled titanium bolt for it and I kind of wanted to order one before actually pulling out the bolt, so I can't measure it yet. If anyone has the size handy that'd be great!

I'd like to know too. Also received a request from the racing schools to replace the drain bolt with one that can be wired like below which is also magnetic.
If it's the same size as the ZX-10R then it's M12x1.5x15 :

That's exactly the same sort of thing I'm looking for. The button-head bolt is nearly impossible to drill so it can be safety wired. I'm GUESSING that it's the same size as the ZX10R, but I could easily see it being different for whatever reason.

For future reference, the bolt is M12 x 1.5mm x 15mm. I ordered the one from Pro-Bolt specced for the ZX10R.

Where did you find this info? Do you also know the fill plug size?

I ordered a spare drain plug and had my mechanic measure it for me, since even the Kawasaki corporate rep didn't know. While it should be accurate, I'll verify it on Tuesday when the actual oil change gets done.

The oil fill cap is M30x1.5 per Sato Racing. I actually ordered this Rizoma fill cap for easy safety wiring as well, I'll get that one double checked this week too to verify it.

Knolls, did you happen to verify these sizes today?

Oil sump size is definitely correct as they carried out the service and swapped it out. I haven't picked up the bike yet to verify the oil fill plug though, will update later this week once I do.
