Home work is required. Not brute strength. You need to soak the screws in PB blaster or similar solvent. You also need to use the correct type screw driver ( in this case JIS) The yamaha vstar tool kit
has one. You need to tap on the end of the screw head with the screw driver engaged whilst trying to turn it. A wrench or small 1/4 drive socket handle is more than enough to seat the jis driver in place.
Most times this method will remove the screws. There are allen head socket type screws that can be purchased as replacements.
This is not that hard to do. Dealer charge will be several hundred at least.
Good luck with the dealer.
