Lots of heat and big hammer will get them out.
Trouble is, you will need new bolts to replace them.
Are you replacing any corroded brake lines in that hidden area above the fuel tank ?

They can be seriously difficult to get out in good condition. Probe Store told me they are obsolete and for all his faults Mark does know his parts so hes probably right, however you can buy high tensile blanks that are the right diameter and long enough from a specialist fastener supplier, then re-thread the end. I was going to do just that then I managed to get a good one out of a doner, so there wasn't the need, but at least I know a way round that problem if it ever happens again.

If anyone gets into real difficulties I'll be happy to do the machining if you buy the blanks. 12mm metric fine machined onto a 14mm x 200 mm blank from memory. I think the blanks were about £15 each but I'm going back 4 years.
