Just brought a Saito 125a ,what a lovely engine .It came with 3 allen keys .I have a set of Align screw drive type allen keys but they are either to small or to big to fit the allen screws on the engine .obviously there are a different type of allen key to what I have .Would like to get a set of allen keys that will fit this engine ,anyone know what type of allen keys they are on Saito engines .IE metric etc so I can buy the right ones

They are all metric Rocker. However, if the engine is new, the only allen keys you need are the ones to remove the rocker covers and check and adjust the valve clearances and these tools should be with the engine as they are supplied by Saito with the engine.

Just don't buy them from a discount tool firm - go to a professional quality supplier and make sure they are branded (Bondhus, Unbrako, Wera, Snap-on, Allen are all good examples). The small (well maybe not that small if you go for Snap-On!) price difference in our smaller sizes is more than worth it in avoiding damaged fasteners.
