From what I have read, the fz has standard threads on the bolt. Righty tighty/lefty loosey. I have used the 2x4 in the rear wheel and a cheater pipe on a break-over bar to get them off in the past. It won't be easy and you need to torque it back down when you put the new one on. Find you a gorilla of a dude if you can't get it.

At first i was trying to do it at home. Had my gf sitting on my bike holding front and rear brake, a block of wood between wheel and swingarm, and a breaker bar with a jack handle at the end for leverage. would not budge.. so i just waited til i got to my place of work. Took all of 15 seconds to get it off with my impact up here lol.

put it in neutral, shove a pipe or something between the swingarm and the wheel spoke with something soft like a tshirt wrapped around it to prevent scatches (i used a tire iron), make sure the washer is not bent over the nut, then just use the ratchet to take it off. Leverage is everything if its on there too tight so try different angles that allow you to easily and consistently apply force to the wrench. You don't need to use the rear brake.

I took mine off with a crescent wrench.

Cool. Squanto is a cool guy.

Spraying Kroil WD40 or using Mouse Milk in the future to help loosen stuff up for future reference.
