Popped a front brake hose today. Just want to make sure I have the right size line wrenches. They are metric, right? how about the bleeder wrench size? Just trying to get all my ducks in a row before I do this.

Well, got the job done. For anyone else who needs this information. The flare nut oddly enough was 9/16. A 14mm slipped on me. The hex on the hose end is 16mm. The banjo bolt on the other end of the hose going into the caliper is 11mm, and the bleeder is 10mm.

IIRC there is a note either in the owners manual or the service manual stating that the Riv uses a combination of metric and english spec fasteners. I think the majority of the fasteners are metric, although interestingly enough, for low to medium torque applicaitons they are also for the most part close enough to their english counterparts to fit OK.
