    Removing non-drive arm on a XTR m980 2x

    While waiting for my other part to come in the mail, I installed my xtr cranks on my bike just to see how it looked like. It looked very nice! When its time to take the non-drive arm off, it is stuck! Both pinch bolts are already taken out and the arm is just solid stuck and won't budge.

    Isn't this suppose to just slide out easy or do I need a crank puller to do the job?

    This this ever happen to any of you? Any help is appreciated.

    No worries, you don't need a crank puller. Sounds like you forgot to push open the safety pin, which prevents the crank from falling of accidentally.

    Nice cranks! Happy trails.

    Thanks for the reply de lars... I was able to pull the arm out. All I did was to pry the space between the pinch bolts to open it up a little bit and that did the trick.
