Question side stand removal

Just bought a k7 wee that's been lowered, but they didn't shorten the side stand. A friend is waiting for me to bring the side stand over so he can fix it.
So far I've removed the spring clips, taken off the nut, but can't budge the bolt. Is there a trick or do I just need a bigger hammer?

The bolt is threaded in to the bike that holds the side stand on.

So you have removed nut 3 and you are trying to remove bolt 2? I'd guess it is pretty well threadlocked, so I'd go with a really long arm ratchet or a breaker bar, but I've also destroyed things trying to remove them, so you probably shouldn't listen to me

High strength threadlock is used there. Use heat to defeat it.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Thanx. I wedged a wrench on the bolt head and used the stand itself as a breaker bar. Since the threads were in the outside part of the yoke, it loosened right up. Clever how they used nut 3 as a double-nut to keep it secure. The last mechanic used Loc-tite to make sure it didn't come loose!
