Frame Slide Bolt

I need some advise:
2003 GSXR 600
Left side Frame slider bolt that goes to the frame/engine casing is loose. It also has some rust on it. Ive sprayed it with some WD40 and let it sit for a few sec before I tried to loosen it up. Once I tried to loosen it, it seemed to be stuck. I used an opened ended wrench for extra torque and it moved. Tried the same step again and same results. Its just not moving easily feels as if its stuck/striped or rusted...
Any advise would be help on trying to remove this bolt out.
I now want to remove it so I can clean the threads, tighten up the slider and maybe replace them with a new set.

Thanks in advance

Not sure about the application but are you sure there’s no pinch bolt or other locking mechanism holding it?

I noticed that you type this a lot!


Is there any special penetrating oil that you have found works the best?

There's several, it depends on what the material is: Aluminum, steel, stainless etc.
