      I suggest liberal application of WD-40, followed by a period of waiting. If it doesn't pop loose easily, find a heat gun and repeat.
      Also, if you are using a Torx wrench socket, after applying the WD-40, set the socket wrench in place and give it 2 or 3 sharp taps with a hammer before twisting.

      Here is a set of cheap Torx wrench sockets. As much as I detest cheap tools, I have found Harbor Freight to have decent stuff for motorcycle wrenching.
      Corrected link below to a 1/4" drive set. That is all you need 98% of the time on a bike.

      WD-40 is for peasants. (I say jokingly, just to be clear...)

      The good shit, however, is Aero-Kroil. You can buy it at most Ace Hardware stores, it comes in an orange can. The only thing better than that for penetrating lube is a 50/50 mix of ATF and Acetone.

      And while we're on the topic of good lubes, pick up some 'Tap Magic' (also at most Ace Hardware stores) in case you need cutting oil for drilling or chasing threads. That is, as they say, the Cat's Meow.
