Have you tried liquid wrench? Lightly tap the stud before trying to turn? Never mind I see it in the photo.

Why remove the stud though, not enough clearance?

You might try warming up the engine to help the metal around the stud expand. Be careful using liquid wrench around hot metal, and I would wear some work gloves to protect your hands from the heat.

A bit of advice, take it or leave it; if you're not real familiar with removing the studs on these engines, please stop now before you make it worse.
If there's still some stud to work with a capable shop can get it out.
Too often I get the broken/stripped fastener after both the owner of the bike and his "friend next door with some tools" have hacked at it.
It typically doubles the cost once I get it because I have to use extreme methods to extract the fastener.
On the Harleys in particular it's a real issue because the steel stud has literally welded itself inside of the aluminum head.
Jack it up too badly and you're looking at replacing the head.
Now, you might get lucky, but then again, you may not.
My 2 cents, ymmv.
