Charly, I'm pretty sure I re-used the Kawi bolts, but either will work. I think the handguard aluminum bar is no thicker than the portion of the bar end that the existing bolt is holding.
If you're uneasy with that, it's no problem to remove the long bolts from the expansion assembly and use them. I think I remember checking that and noting that the thread pattern is the same. I might be wrong with that though.
EDIT: One thing I just remembered. I am pretty sure the existing bolts are red-loctited in, so don't be surprised if you have to really get on them with an allen-wrench to get them to break free. If you can't get them to budge, you can always heat the bolt a bit with an air gun or soldering iron. Watch out for over heating the grip though. Good luck.
