I want to remove the final drive on my bike before I head out for vacation on Friday, but our temps here in Minnesota are going to remain pretty cold until then. I need to heat the bolts to remove them, and my question is....

Will it damage the metal to heat it up when it's probably 25 degrees in my garage?

The only reason to heat the bolts is if they were installed with Loctite, which is a no no.

If that is the case you need to get them above 100 F.
