Default Brake Rotor

I have a 2002 Arctic Cat 400 with a solid rear axle. While changing the bearings I noticed the rotor was bent in one spot. I bought a replacement when I tried removing the bolts securing the rotor to the hub they did not budge. I was wondering if they were just rusted stuck or maybe reverse threaded. Any ideas?

Yep, they were just frozen. I took a pair of vise grips and clamped on the bolts to get enough leverage to break them loose.
