I was re-greasing the shock lingage and it seems i need to remove the kick stand to get the bolt for the link arms out of the frame.. Two of the three kick stand bolts are small the third is a large stainlesssteel one... the smaller bolts stripped out on the first tug of the allen wrench.. The stainless one came out just fine...
Do I need to get a EZout to remove the two cheap bolts or is there a way to get the rest of the linkage out with the kick stand in place??

It appears like you have to do that with the 650R due to it being tough to free the linkage bolt with just a regular allen wrench. Remove the kickstand, why not, and locktite it's bolts while you're greasing the linkage.
