It depends on what kind of fitting? Banjo bolt? Flare fitting?

Common practice is to match up the appropriate diameter/thread pitch and the line size.

You have to be careful though as some NPT threads are
unbelievable close to metric pipe thread.(1/4 NPT and 10mm Metric is a good example)

I would use a thread pitch gauge to compare your ID vs your OD threads. If it's not EXACTLY the same, don't use the fitting.

Oh and easy on the CAPS.

Are you talking about hard or soft lines?
All honda hardlines are simply 3/16" std flare pipe with metic fittings.

EL Guy - if you replaced a softline, just make sure it holds under pressure, and make sure that it's properly secured so it won't snag on the tire or suspension when you're turning/driving (zip ties work great for keeping the softlines in check).
