    Crank removal question. . .

    I wanted to upgrade the fsa 386 crank that came on my 2011 Flash 1 alloy with an x9. Is it as simple as undoing the 10mm allen on the driverside crank ? Do i need a crank puller or is it just remove the 10mm nut and tap out the other crank arm ? Thanks guys, just started to do my own wrenching and it seems like the cranks should be easy enough.

    FSA should have a full PDF on their site re install w/ exploded diagram.

    But yes, the FSA SLK cranks on my bike remove as you suggest.

    Thanks Stumpjumpy, I saw their website and it has directions for installation of the cranks. On a side note it mentions that u undo the 10mm and it should come out. Its crazy bc when i call my lbs, they tell me that i prob would need a crank puller. Forums are usually the best place for accurate info as we are all owners of the bikes and many of us experienced these things firsthand.

    Just a note, you might need a hammer on the 10mm allen key!

    Mine was tight as hell!! Once loose, the whol crank will come off, no puller needed!

    While doin some searching online, i came across a few threads that described how tight that 10mm allen was. Hopefully the lbs torqued it correctly when assembling my flash... thanks for the tip !
