    XX extractor bolt
    Anyone know how to get a new Truvativ extractor bolt? The one that requires a 16mm allen key to replace? I did eventually make a tool that can re-install it (5/8" bolt head) but managed to mar it up a bit. Only have about an 1/8" for the tool to grip the bolt and managed to scratch it up. Any info will be helpful...may have to contact SRAM directly for this one.

    Not to dig up an old thread but did you contact SRAM about the proper tool to use? I ended up getting a 5/8" coupler from Lowes that did a pretty good job. That with a 5/8" socket allowed me to use a torque wrench to get it up to 133 in/lbs. Even at that and packed with grease, the cap still wanted to back out when removing the crank arm. It took me several rounds of tightening the cap and backing out the crank bolt before I was finally able to get the crank arm off.
