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.

      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 ?
