Answer: 
You will need a tail piece to allow for proper transition from the strainer basket into the plumbing pipe drain. A slip joint nut with nylon washer will slide down the pipe, threading onto the threaded plumbing pipe [metal or PVC] and tighten, causing the nylon washer to flatten and seal the connection for water tight seal.

Although you might be able to reuse your existing strainer tail piece to save some money, most are worn and have a level of corrosion within from use. The Kohler tail piece is very good quality and matches up perfectly to the strainer drain opening.

Answer: 
I found one listed on the online site, however, since I was unable to compare to the Badger disposal's current flange for sizing I elected not to purchase.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Get the Best products at my local Home Depot I knew I wanted a quality product for my new Farm Sink. I was surprised to find the Kohler brand available at the Home Depot. It is great to know that I didn't have to order on line and wait. The product is extremely solid. Great quality and the shine on it will last forever. Love it. Thanks so much! September 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very satisfied This was a replacement. The cost from Kohler was ridiculous. Found it it Home Depot for a much better price. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful! This fits my farm sink perfectly. It is heavy duty and works great. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality product Duostrainer fit the Kohler sink just fine Looks good, appearance matched the disposer drain. On the spendy side, though. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vibrant Stainless sink strainer Quality equipment/hardware makes this installation quick and dependable. The finished matched vibrant stainless faucet finish exactly. Although pricey, the old adage holds true: you get what you pay for. February 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Weighty. Excellent quality and finish, but low-quality o-ring seal at base of basket strainer In October 2011, I installed the KOHLER K-8801-VS Duostrainer Sink Strainer and tail pipe in Vibrant Stainless, into the left side of a Artisan double basin sink installed in my kitchen. The strainer is weighty, and the quality and finish is excellent, but the skinny o-ring seal at the bottom of the strainer basket that allows you to fill the sink with water has stretched out, won't stay seated on the base of the strainer, and is in need of replacement. Other than the low-quality o-ring, I'm satisfied witht his sink strainer, and recommend it to others. I'll contact Kohler and seek a replacement o-ring pursuant to the warranty. July 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by VS Duostrainers Strainers do not hold water. Kohler customer service was/is nice, but they sent me 2 new strainers, and only one holds water. Now I have 4 (!) and only one holds water. They are planning to send 2 more, and at my request, additional o-rings. September 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! Great, high quality product! Matches the stainless steel disposal flange and sink perfectly! Much easier to install than a typical drain flange due to the screw collar design. Very happy with this product and would purchase again! April 14, 2015
