Stripped Engine bolt

Hey so my buddy is trying to install a centre spider stand and while loosening the left hand side (kick stand side) upper engine bolt the bolt was super tight and now turns but will not come out. I assume it is stripped. Is there an easy way to remove this bolt?

I assume after it comes out there will need to to be a tap and helicoil?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Cheers,
NSDUCATI

is it the bolt that holds the engine in the frame? if it is try securing the other end of the bolt while loosening it. it is probably the bolt turning not a stripped thread.
