Default Metric or standard bolts

Are all of the bolts on our Harley's metric or a mix of metric and standard? I always thought it was crazy to mix metric and standard bolts but I guess Harley has their reasons. They do the same thing on American Car and trucks. Years ago there was talk about gradually converting over to all metric.

98% of the world uses the metric system...ya I think its coming right after you give up your paper dollar and switch to a coin

Recognizing the importance of cultural diversity and political correctness, Harley has thrown a generous amount of metrics in to the mix.

Harleys will use all metric fasteners before too long.
