    Help removing race face crank arm 1x11 to swap chainrings

    I wanted to experiment/replace the 32 chainring with a 28 since I am headed to some steep climbs this weekend. I am having trouble removing the (driveside) crank bolt on my 2016 5010 C S. Its a Race Face Crank and I only see one bolt to remove the crank arm. Is this left or right thread? I tried significant force in either direction and wanted to be sure of the correct direction before applying more force. Is there something other that force that I should be considering here?
    Thanks for sharing any knowledge, experience or opinion with me.

    This is the install guide for the Race Face Aeffect crank on your bike. That crank bolt is supposed to be torqued to 61Nm, which is more than just significant force. You're really going to need to wail on that bolt to break it loose.

    Help.
    The instructions say to gently tap the arm on to the spline with a hammer. They are now together fused. Can you suggest a way to split them off the spline?
    Thanks a milion
