    Subframe bolt size ... wtf !?

    Hey guys, does anyone know what size the allen heads are that mount my subframe to the frame. Its a 2000 RSVR (if it matters) and ive tried all sorts of sizes. ive measured the allen key 'hole' and its 7.3mm flat to flat ... so a 7mm allen key ? Ive never even seen one, is this correct ? ive also tried imperial keys but no luck

    Mine are 7mm, my 7mm allen ket fit perfectly (although I could do with getting a 7mm allen socket as the subframe bolts were on bloody tight to try undoing with a normal allen key).
