I bought a replacement exhaust for my '83 NH 650, and while taking the 
existing one off, I ran into a stuck bolt. One of the 12mm bolts on the 
underside that holds the exhaust to the frame. I tried a breaker bar, my 
impact driver, some liquid wrench, and some of those Craftsman Bolt 
Extractors, and in the end, just ended up rounding off the bolt. Thought I 
would post about it here and see if anyone has any recommendations before I 
spend any more money. I hear good things about PB Blaster, but I worry I 
won't be able to get it up into the threads, since the bolt is upside down. 
I also read about using a propane torch on it (although that made me a 
little nervous). Any thoughts?
