Have you tried an extension bar on the Allen wrench for more leverage?

Are you switching out the assembly because its rattling like crazy when you rev up?

It's a 12 mm socket and I'm changing it because the kickstarter is hitting and scratching up the frame. So I am replacing the lever and the knuckle

I just tried the heat gun and it didnt work. This bolt feels impossible ive put all ive had into it with no success. I dont know what to do next!

I would try WD-40, heat (torch, not heat gun, but watch seal), and an impact wrench. The wrench may be enough to get it loose.
