    All that's needed now is for somebody to make a version of that featuring the KH/Onza hub and cranks (with the extraction rings that unscrew the wrong way) and then I'll be a happy bunny.

          Don't know why it made you smile, but ok...
          Gravity is not the issue.

            that was a nice tutorial, i actually learned alot out of it, even if its kinda pointless as i dont have a torker DX crankset or even a pinchbolt crankset.

            Can anyone do the same for the Koxx ISIS crankset? I'm guessing the KH moment removal would be pretty similar though but it would be nice to see one

            anyways good work, UDC shoudl link that page on their spline maintenance site.
            I'm a soldja.

                It's pretty much the same the same thing for any splined cranks.

                  How often should that be done?

                    Depends on how much and where you ride. e.g. If you ride on sand a lot, you have to do it more often.

                    I clean and re-grease mine every two months.

                        About ten hours a week, trials and street.

                        I ride on rocks that have a bit of sand a few times a week.

                          how do you stop cross threading with an extractor?
                          I didn't spell it wrong, you just read it wrong!

                            Unless you ride on a sandy beach every day, this is a bit excessive. 2x a year should do just fine.

                            Always lube the threads (with a dab of anti-sieze or grease) and start the threading with your fingers. You should be able to turn the extractor 2-3 revolutions with your fingers before using a wrench. If the threads cross you won't be able to turn the nut with your fingers... back out the nut and try again.

                              I followed this and it worked very well but i have a question.

                              How do you clean your bearings? They don't come apart but I would imagine that mud and stuff could still get inside them so how would you clean them out and regrease them.

                              Call me an idiot if this has already been answered but I didn't see it anywhere

                                I think you just have to buy new ones. Most bearings are sealed, so you wouldn't be able to take them apart.

                                Or maybe there's a way and I just don't know about it.
