    X01 cassette removal with park Fr-5?

    According to the park tool site, the FR-5 is the correct tool for sram X01 cassette removal, but mine barely contacts the teeth. I'm afraid to use it for fear of stripping the X01 lockring teeth (which I guess isn't really a lockring).
    Is there another tool I should be using?

    That is the correct tool. It should sink in to the bottom of the splines.

    The only way mine is going to sink that far in is if I remove the hub cone (which is what I guess I'll do).
    Thanks for the pic!

    Make sure you remove the hub end caps, if possible. Also, make sure you secure the tool to the lock ring with a qr or something similar. I bought a piece of threaded rod and a few nuts and washers to work with a 142x12 hub. I managed to mangle a new xx1 cassette last year due to the teeth not being fully set, so I'm extra cautious now...

    Ditch the Park Tool and get one of these: 09C1 Shimano CS Freewheel Tool

    The hollow space inside is much larger/deeper and will accept a larger variety of hubs. Don't worry about the "Shimano CS" in the name. SRAM is the same. I use it on my XX1.

    I have a number of Park Tools that fail to work with a variety components. They're not always a "sure bet" for the job at hand...
