Thanks to all of you for all your input.
the exhaust bolts on a DR350 that i just bought were frozen in the head. sprayed cable lube on them for three days and each day i would tap them with a light hammer. on the fourth day, I put the allen wrench in and they just went "pop" and out they came. yeah soak them, tap them,patience and pray.
