The hole would seem to be 5/16 ...for which imperial/BSP copper pipe, maybe slightly rubbed down and chamfered at the fitting end, should do with a very small amount of JB Weld or other "steel" epoxy to seal the "push in"

I use a short length of copper pipe pushed in with a light coating of Threebond sealant. Finish it with a suitable length of flexible tube. The position and angle of drilling of the breather outlet makes it difficult to get anything in it on a swinging arm bike without removing the primary chaincase.
