Are the mainly metric or standard? As in the wrenches you carry in your tool kit
Ummmm.... You do realize that some standard sizes are the same as some metric sizes right? Like how a 1/2" is a 13mm and a 7/16" is a 11mm.
Ummmm, Jay, I have been a mechanic for 40 plus years. And yes, I am aware that a few Metric and SAE sizes are first cousins. But Metric is Metric, and SAE is SAE, and the threads don't match in any instance. And I'm not upsetUmmmm.... You do realize that some standard sizes are the same as some metric sizes right? Like how a 1/2" is a 13mm and a 7/16" is a 11mm.
Yes the clutch cover uses 3/8 and the clutch backing plate uses 7/16. But the engine uses metric. I'm sorry if the word drivetrain being added under metric upset you.
You should also carry a torques bit socket set. Believe a T25, T27, and T30 should be all you need.
Technically, they are NOT the SAME, but they are pretty darn close. Close enough to be able to interchange wrenches/sockets without fear of ruining bolt heads.
(yellow hand clap)..... But Metric is Metric, and SAE is SAE, ....
No doubt I'm so freakn paranoid about the cluster f of sizes it often takes me longer to figure out which size is the exact fit than it actually dose to get the job done. One thing I've learned if its not the perfect fit u better find the perfect fit or ur going to cause yourself one hell of a headache in the long run.
Now damnit, that right there is funny, I don't care who you are!:rofl3::rofl3:
Jay, it's all in good fun! Sometimes we pop off with something that sounds harsh. I hope I didn't offend you. What I meant by my ummmm comment, was, am I the only guy that has metric nuts and bolts on my suspension.Wtf is your alls prob? I answered with the correct answer of both. I doubt anyone here has questioned that and as a matter of fact has proven me correct. Yes I said suspension was metric. I was wrong. There's no need for the quoting and humility u are showing. And anyone who says a 13mm will round off a 1/2" or that a 11mm will round off a 7/16" is purely retarded. Yes thread difference is night and day. But this thread was asking about what wrenches should the guy carry. We all have came to the same conclusion that both should be.
I was lol'ing with RMR and everyone had to butt in. I've been a mechanic for about 10 years and trust me, unless your an idgit, some standards and metrics work just fine with each other. And your drain bolt shouldn't be so tight that a close wrench should round it off the first time you need to loosen it on the trail. I believe 16ft lbs is all it should be. Maybe it's 22? Just spit balling.
Everyone takes this stuff too seriously, like it matters what people think about how their rep is on Internet forums. For those people I'll say it again - I apologize for sayin that some metric and some standard will interchange. I was wrong.
Edit- I check drain bolt torque for xp and according to Polaris both the engine drain bolt and the reservoir bolt are 12ft lbs
