I don't have any liquid wrench. Is there anything else that can be done for rusty nuts? LOL

That makes Me think of this hat I once saw.

It said:

Ashes to Ashes
Dust to Dust
If it wasn't for Women
My Pecker would Rust


So maybe it'll work on rusty nuts too. <BG> 8o)

You really don't want to take a chance. Go get some PB Blaster at walmart and soak it good for a couple days prior to trying to pull them off. It's your only chance. You try it without the pb or liq wrench and you will almost definitely break them off. You still might with the good soaking, but at least you did what you could do. Remember to warm the bike up before you start wrenching on them. You might even soak the nuts and then warm the bike up, let it cool down and soak them again just to help the PB soak in.

Edit: I have never used the Seafoam Deap Creap but I hear good things about it. I know first hand of the seafoam fuel treatment though. To me, PB Blaster is to rusty nuts and bolts what seafoam is to our fuel system!

I bought a 256 piece socket and wrench set with allen and nut drivers 1/4 3/8 and 1/2 drive metric and standard sockets, the whole nine yard from sears before I tore my truck down a couple years ago for $140.00 bucks. had everything I needed to do an engine rebuild except for 1 or 2 very large sockets like a 1 3/4 inch and maybe a flexible swivel bit I think it even came with extensions for all the sockets too. and you cant beat their guarantee!

Whats a tune - up on a vulcan, 4 spark plugs and a can of seafoam.
This bike is basic maintenance for anybody who has ever held a screwdriver the right way down, and beleive me i have seen someone hold a scredriver with the handle to the screw head and ask, 'How does this work', seriously.
You can do all this yourself with a few metric spanners and sockets and some P.B blaster to soften those rusty bolts.
Dont forget the 'blue' threadlock to keep those fasteners tight.
