    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.

    most rotor bolts are T25 torx bolts. not allens. go to a hardware store and get a set of torx keys.

    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.
