Yup. The top of the brass is a pipe thread, that all shaffer valves use, then there is a hex for a socket, then the part of the brass that screws into the aluminum fork cap is a 5/16 fine thread.

5/16 x 24 circled in red screws into the stock aluminum fork cap. I put an oring on it to keep it sealed and to allow me to snug it up, without having to use much torque, so it wouldn't vibrate loose if the bar is removed
