removing rear shock (black swing arm)

hello chaps, got the swing arm off the bike, just want to whip off the shock and found the allen key bolt on one side rather stiff to say the least. is it reverse thread or just being difficult? any help would be great. cheers

Be handy if they had fitted them to some of the earlier bikes, save everything fetting crudded up and causing major super super tight issues with the bolt removal
