Heat won't help. You are going to have to get your puller(?) out of there. IIRC, that is a 20mm x 1.5 pitch thread. I don't know what the threads will look like after you get your puller out, but that is the only way you are going to have success. If the threads are too buggered up to fit the proper bolt to loosen the rotor, you can weld a new nut on the end of the rotor and remove it. I have never been able to get one loose with a standard gear pulling tool with the jaws on it. Takes a bolt through the center and even then some hammer taps and cussing. Lots of cussing involved with some of them.
But, there may be an easier way. Assuming you can get your puller out, why not just fix the rotor you have now? If you have all the magnets it can be done in place. I would rather have a "fixed" rotor than a new one if I were keeping the bike. ( I would "fix" a new rotor before installing one.....). These JB Weld fixed rotors have shown no problems and some have been in place several years and thousands of mile.
