KLR250 Choke Lever bolt size (handlebar)?

Hi Guys: Long time KLR owner with a 2001 KLR250. In a nutshell: my thumb lever choke on the left side of the handlebar lost its' bolt so now the choke lever is just dangling. It's still usable. Can anyone advise the thread/length of the mounting bolt for this? I see complete replacements on Ebay for $18.00-$25.00 but I don't need a new thumb lever, etc. I just need a bolt. Any insight or thoughts?

You probably have also lost the spring tension wave washer which is in-between the lever & the housing. With-out spring tension, one will have to hold the lever in position while starting & warming up. Pain in the butt to put up with. I'll suggest a new lever assembly. Old # 46092-1111 or newer # 46092-0554.
