´07 KH Crank Removal

What´t the correct tool for gettting those cranks off. I used Josh´s bearing puller (from Unicycle.com) but it scribed the crank arm badly. And the dinky little spark plug shaped unit is too short.

The first tool JL’s talking about that I use is the Evercraft bearing puller, which I use to yank Profiles from their hub:http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=419
It doesn’t work very well with the new 2007 KH Moment cranks.

The second tool he’s talking about (“spark plug” shaped unit) is the Park CWP-6 crank wrench and puller:

I have used the CWP-6 successfully to yank the new KH ISIS cranks from the KH 2007 Moment hub. They came off really easily with this thing, I might add. The CWP-6 works fine for the 2007 KH crankset, it’s not too short. I’m not sure what the issue is, John…

I use this one here http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=16845&d=1166813165 But “BEWARE” and dont make the mistake I did, the tool comes with 2 different buttons that fit in the end of the tool, a large one and a small one DO NOT USE THE SMALL ONE. I made that error and the little button gets pressed into the threads and damages them.

Both my splined cranks (one is Truvative ISIS, one is older XTR), came
with an extractor bolt like in the image here:

When you tighten it, in installs the crank. When you loosen it, it
extracts the crank, since it pushes on the “ring” part that is attached
to the threads on the crank itself.

I expect your local bike shop could sell you a pair of extractor bolts
like that.
