    Gen 3 caliper hex ?

    About to remove wheels for tyre change.  Are the Brembo caliper mounting bolts an 8 mm hex drive, or slightly bigger?  My (unworn) 8 mm hex drive feels ever so slightly loose, and with 50 Nm of torque to apply on refitting, I don't want to damage the bolts.  Thanks for any replies. 

    By the way, bike just back from A1 Moto in York after premature (7,800) 10,000 mile service - also asked for final drive oil change.  Just over £300 with their 'January special' 20 % discount.

    Agreed - I would normally but I have had this bike from new so need service book stamping by a kosher Triumph dealer to preserve resale value.
