Default Hel performance SS brake line help

So I ordered a set of lines for The front and back of my 01 katana 750. I waited for a while then ended up having to call them to say more order didn't arrive. They mentioned they were short staffed and would get it out right away. They did and it showed up yesterday. Well after reading the install instructions I realize they did not include any copper washers or banjo bolts. I'm going from a three line to a two line in the front and I have to have a longer master cylinder banjo bolt. Has anyone had trouble with Hel before? I'm frustrated that it's taken this long to get a kit that doesn't have all the parts. Was trying to get my bike ready for track in the next week or so.

Nope, they are pretty good with their orders. Must have cut staff.

Can't help with the washers, but you don't need a bolt. You can reuse the banjo that's down at the splitter on your front lines right now.
