FSA Tempo cranks

Hi Mechanics,

I have a Giant Rapid with a FSA Tempo crank. I have been going through the FSA manuals but no where along the way does it mention thread size for pedals. I have some cheapie pedals on there which I want to replace with something better like Shimano MTB pedals.

Question: Do most modern cranks accept 9/16" inch as a default thread size for pedals???

Thank you.

Essex

Yes is the simple answer (although there will no-doubt be an exception somewhere)

The exception being one-piece cranks that are commonly found on wallyworld bikes.
