Tapered bolts

I believe this to be a common problem. I broke a hex-head socket trying to remove the tapered bolts that hold my rear rotor on. I took it to Vee-Twin to see what they thought. They tried heating up the bolts one at a time with a torch to loosen the loctite holding them in place but to no avail. So they proceeded to weld bolts on top of bolts to remove the damn things.
