    Altho there are several sae wrenches that are close to the mm wrenches. If you dont have one or the other handy...
    5/16--8mm 7/16--11mm 5/8--16mm 3/4--19mm 15/16--24mm and there are others. I didn't have my 24 mm handy but I was using a 1/2" 15/16 socket with short extension. I believe the drain plug hadn't been out for 1 yrs. from what I was told about the bike. So I had to also use a rubber mallet and knock the crap out of the ratchet to break the drain plug loose. 15/16" works for me. By all means if you have the right tool for the job use it. Just don't use a crescent wrench on anything you don't have to.
