I'm saying a new, unused, OEM o-ring from Kawasaki has a caliper measured thickness of 1.85mm. I didn't measure the diameter but if the o-ring is too thick it's not going to seat in the groove. I keep a few spares here just in case and that o-ring is one of them.
What is the measured thickness of your "new" o-ring?? I don't always like to measure old o-rings because of the possibility of swelling from chemical contact or use.
