Try penetrating fluid lots of it and it will work, probably salt build up, as an example I recently went to change the Anode that is bolted under the engine bracket, initial resistance on the nuts but then they all undid, problem was I had broken each one of the 4 bolts in half, luckily there was about 1 cm of each protruding out from the bolt holes so plenty of wd40 later and they all came out. And know I have had to order 4 more from yamaha. Point is I was surprised by all the salt build up which had stuck the bolts. I will know next time to seal the bolt heads slightly with rubber compound stuff on a bit of the thread and if taking off will use some wd40 or the like first to get salt off.

Can you put a long piece of threaded rod through a piece of over sized tube and through the steering tube nuts and washers on each end and draw it out? Obviously with all of the above.
