Lot's of fun, and unfortunately all too common on Harleys. The rubber mounted motors are actually worse.
I've got a jig to guide a drill bit to remove the studs.

I always spray a little penetrating oil like Kroil around the nuts before I tackle it just to be safe. Have yet to snap a stud.

Probably going to be most commonly found at a gunshop. Little bit of heat on the nut helps too.

I've heard from multiple sources that a 50/50 ATF/acetone mix works about the same.
