R1200RT oil drain bolt size

My neighbor just bought an 07 R1200RT and he wants to change the oil. He says he can't see the oil drain bolt good enough to see what size it is. Does anyone know the size and if it is an allen or torx?
Thanks
Bruce

I know it is an Allen. I *think* it is 8 mm - could be 9mm, but definitely metric. to be certain, I am sure you could go to max bmw or oemparts and look at the micro fiche to confirm (or, someone here will correct or confirm my recollection.)
