I can't think of any bolt head that would be SAE, unless some type of after market part has been added. Everything should be metric, but if you add something SAE don't forget to take that size in your tool pouch in case it needs to be tightened.

If you do have some bolts and nuts that are SAE, I would try to find a metric unit to replace them with so as not to have to carry any more tools than absolutley necessary.

Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
