Siezed on bolts?

Has anyone who has replaced their stator (via tuxedo mod or removing the engine) encountered the "SIEZED" on bolts? There are 3 of them that attaches the stator to the bike. I've tried PB blaster to remove them ( letting the pb blaster sit for 2 days now, and constantly spraying them)but the bolts still won't budge( BTW I'm referring to the bolts that require the "ALLEN KEY" to remove them), Is there any other way they can be removed? I am a female so please keep that in mind

It sure why you being a woman matters, but I'd usually say try heating the bolts, but not sure how easy that be. Next I'd go for an impact driver, with the proper fitting Allen...if it's even just a tiny bit loose it could damage the bolt (or the Allen key)

Can you post a photo of the bolts in question?

Here are the pics! The 1st pic shows the bolts on the original stator. Those are the one that I can't get off. The last pic show the outer side of the stator and cover that I used my dremel tool to cut out.

Don't think mine had allen screws on the stator. Is yours stock or had the mod plate done?

The bolts may have had threadlocker used on them, in which case heat will help free them up.

Also, there are metric allen wrenches, if an SAE fits loose, you've probably got a metric allen head.

edit: Ok, see the pics now. Definitely not stock. Heat, and the correct allen wrench should do it. If all else failed, I would have at it with vise-grips or small pipe wrench, since there's room to do so.

make sure you change the oil a few times,as you might have gotten metal filings down in the motor.the Tuxedo mod is recommended to be done with the side case off the motor for this reason

It's stock. I'm in the middle of doing the mod if and when I can get these bolts off.

Didn't see my edit so I posted again.

The stator is out of the case, so it can't be stock.

Heat, the right wrench .. etc.

Yes, I will. I've flushed the motor out really good with kerosene and I've also removed the side bolt, the washer , the spring and cleaned out the screen as well. Thanks for the heads up!
