Well how do you remove a disc brake rotor bolt? I can't find any allen key that's the right size, am I missing something?

You need a Torx wrench to get rotor bolts off.

Yup, or your going to strip the bolt if you attempt it w/ a 5mm allen. Happened to me Had to dremel a notch in the top of the bolt to get it out w/ a flathead.
