Crank puller

I want to paint my sprocket but I don't have a crank puller and I can't get my drive side arm off. Anything I can use that will work? I tried tapping it with a hammer, no luck.

Kick it (with a shoe on). Worked for me, just keep kicking it and it will come off

I have never, ever gotten a crank puller to work properly. Luckily, the magic of grease usually makes them slide off fairly easily.

My crank puller only works for my Mountianbike.

I would just spray some lube down there and keep at the kicking.

I always grease the spindle, but they havent been taken off since the shop put them on so I guess they didn't. Oh well I guess kicking will have to do.

Thread your crank bolt all of the way in and back it off a turn. Tap the bolt with a hammer to get the cranks moving (these are 3-piece BMX cranks right?). Do that a couple of times (maximum 3 turns) then tap the back of the crank arm with a rubber mallet or gently with a hammer. You can always try the other arm. Make sure you grease up everything real well when putting them back together.

You can always take it to a shop and bribe the dude at the counter with coffee.

My shop would take it off for free, but I'm to lazy to go there. And I don't have a rubber mallet. Whatever I'll get it off somehow.

Not much of a beer fan. I like whiskey. Also I'm not really lazy, I've just misplaced my allen wrench for my cranks and after looking for it for a few hours I have given up.
