Could someone tell me the size of the bolts on the R100GS undercarriage bash plate?

Not the center stand bash plate but the oil pan protector.
I need to remove it and my ratchet set is apparently wanting.
And I can't find this in the fiche.
My apologies for the poor terminology, I'm new here....
Thanks!

Do you mean the size of the head on the flattened bolts?

If so I seem to remember them being around 18mm, you have probably tried 17 and 19 I assume?

Vice grips? Just be sure they're made in Germany.

Yes, I mean the size of the head on the flattened bolts.
My kit goes up to 19mm so I'm pretty sure I tried these but I'm not looking at it right now.
It seems like this would be a pretty common removal, but the bolts are recessed so I can't wrench them.
Am I missing something here?
Thanks for helping out a noob.
Cheers

I think they are actually 24mm from memory.
