Hey all! I have decided to replace my rear set peg brackets (as they have rusted over). 

Secured the replacement brackets but unable to remove the current ones! 

Removed pin under the bolt but no matter how much 'encouragement' I use I can not remove the holding bolt! Any suggestions or techniques would be welcomed! 

Many thanks!!

Make a dam out of plasticine and fill with penetrant ( not WD40). Let it soak, you will need to keep topping it up. To speed up the process try applying heat with a hot air gun the longer you let it soak the better the result.
Regards Martin.

Thanks! So, encase the bolt/bracket and fill it with penetrant - many thanks!  Very Happy
