Metric vs standard hex keys

Recommended Posts

Brand new to ATVing, just got a '11 Grizz 700 and I'm putting together an emergency tool list to take along on remote rides. I'm looking at hex key sets and realized I have no idea if I need metric or standard. So which type hex keys does my grizz take?

And whichever it is, are all the bolts and nuts etc on the bike consistent...like are all either metric or standard?

Not knowing for sure my guess all your fasteners are metric. There is some crossover, such as 7/16 will work for 11mm, 1/2" for 13mm and 9/16" for 14mm ect.

What I done is figure out what tools are needed to remove anything that might have to be removed during a normal outting and pack only those tools instead of complete wrench and socket sets. If something major goes wrong what good will it do you to be able to disassemble the machine in the dirt and not have the parts needed to reassemble? Think id leave all the speciality tools, pullers and big stuff at home. The exception might be the stuff to replace a drive belt.

Thanks kv. That's probably what I'll do... just take what's needed plus enough to change out a drive belt.

      I'm in southeast Idaho. Fall Creek area near Swan Valley is our go-to. Kelly Canyon area has some decent trails. I've heard there is good riding around Mackay and the Lemhis/Lost River range area but we've never ventured that far. Where do you ride around Idaho Falls?

      So one thing I enjoy about Quadcrazy is the amount of diversity when it comes to the bike/brand of choice.  
      We all hear about so many different brands/types that we need help or helping out with! 
      Myself ive had just about every brand bike except for a Suzuki which I’m currently seeking as my next project😜. I currently have 5 quads and they are all different in brand except for two Honda’s one of which is a newer bike fuel injected. I have to say so far through all the bikes I’ve worked on my brand of choice would be Honda! I think they make a great product!  I love the older carburetor bikes! 
      Now I’m sure some of the other members feel differently and I would like to hear your bike of choice and why?  Wether it be the repairs, handling, look, safety, simplicity, electronics etc!!!!!!!
      One of the reasons I bring this up is I have friend that recently purchased a can am new! 
      I asked him why a can am after all the years of Polaris?  He said it’s a nice looking bike and wanted to try something new.
      He has rode the bike three or four times and hated it!  So a trip back to the dealer he traded it in for a Polaris and he’s very happy now.  A costly mistake since he lost money on the can am but back to his Polaris that he said he will never stray again. 
      Let’s hear it !

      my quad wont start no power when the key is on, no lights no neutral light. it was running fine put it in reverse and it died. and nothing..
      battery is good
      starter and solenoid are good...
      checked the fuses they are good (range fro 10 to 15 Amp).
      there is a big one that did not test or checked but it is expensive to replace, but not sure what it does anyways
      any ideas ?
