What size allen/hex key do I need for the tank bolts on 2016SX?
(the bolts directly behing the bars)
There is an allen key that fits in the bike's tool kit, but I would like to know what size it is.

TIA

Measure with a ruler across the flats. It’s a metric Allen key.

If I was home, instead of driving my HGV I would walk to the garage and check for you.
