Carburetor float bowl drain screw numbers

Some years use two different float bowl drain screws having different thread pitches. This information is likely listed somewhere making this redundant but just in case:

The finer thread (6mm x 0.75 mm pitch) #92009-1551
coarser thread (6mm x 1.0 mm pitch) #92009-1095

Of course, if one obtains a carb or bowl and doesn't know the year, then knowing the thread pitch could be useful.

Appreciated if someone could add to a master list of which I am not aware.

Might take some work, but I reckon the parts fiches could be researched to identify the year the part number changed . . .

Which pitch is current? Fine, or coarse?

I noticed that 2011 uses the fine thread but haven't looked further as didn't see the sense. My thinking is that any older bike might have a different bowl than original because of exchange of carb. or parts by intent or simply accidentially if two carbs. were being tanked at the same time.
