M10x1.5 (metric)

For an 'easy to find' solution: Get a short M10 screw + bolt and copper washer. Put the bolt over the screw and the washer behind it. Bolt the screw in a bit and tighten it with the bolt to secure it.

Have fun riding. no oil pressure control tho, so replace it asap.

Luckily no leaking oil

I find this solution on line, hopefully they'll have an auto zone in Vegas where I am

AutoZone carries a Duralast PS177 (by Wells Vehicle Electronics)

If it's not leaking, leave it as it is until you can find one.
