Anybody know the size of the brass cap to put on the stock shocks so the oil won't leak out of them

I just went out to the shed and checked mine. I actually didn't put a plug in them. I have them standing up in 5 gallon bucket with some styrofoam. I just pulled the air hose out of one and stuck it into the other one.

No sign of any oil leakage. They've been sitting that way since Feb or Mar.

its 1/8"NPT. Instead of just putting in a solid cap, I found a 1/8"NPT schrader valve on eBay. I've attached the listing. This way you can keep a bit of air in them if you want. I actually have them mounted on the bike right now and with the valve up I can fill them very easy without screwing around with removing a bag. Just have to fill each shock independantly.
