I'm new to this forum hoping I can get some help.
2010 Wing, no abs, rear break caliper, can't get allen nut loose on caliper, I have bent 2 wrenches, surprised I didn't strip or break anything. Had wings for past 20 years never came across this prob. Just trying to change break pads, on nice Sat afternoon

Welcome:waving:zappo
I have found that
using an allen on a rachet wrench works much better.

5mm allen heads are used ALL over the bike. You could just buy the 5mm 3/8 socket...and maybe the 6mm (really common, too). Put the socket in the pin and strike it a with a hammer a few times...helps break it loose. The next step would be heat.

Sounds like it may have lock-tite on it... in which case try heating the screw (only) up with a mini propane torque, then immediately using the wrench on it again.
