The riser is mounted in rubber. Heat is not the way to go there. You can try two combination wrenches. Use the box end of one on the nut. Use the box end on the other over the open end of the first wrench. There are ways to get more leverage.

Ok, I did it. I t took me about three hours because everything went wrong, and I almost s...t myself cause of the pressure I had to put to unscrew the bolts, but I finished.
What do you think?
Was it worth it?

I squeezed a 14 rench below the triple support and fastened the round end on the nut to stop it from spinning.Than,after taking the handlebar off,I tightened a breaker bar in one of the risers and unscrewd the riser instead of the bolt below.than the same with the other.It took a lot of strength,and I am a big man.It must have been tightened by a sasquatch.
