Trying to remove the dogbone linkage on a 2019 350 XCF. There is a nut on the left side and a bolt on the right side and both are super tight. Do I just loosen the left side nut and then tap it out from the left? Do I leave the nut alone and loosed the bolt head on the right side. Do I do both?

Put a wrench on the bolt to prevent from spinning then take a socket to the nut, remove nut and pound the bolt out - right?

I figured it out and will post in case somebody else is searching for an answer.
The left side nut actually has a flat side where it locks to the frame. It’s towards the front side of the bike so you can’t see the flat at all, until you get everything apart. Poor design, someone could do some damage if they think they need to loosen that nut and put a breaker bar or something thinking it’s just seized on there. Anyways, just loosen the right side bolt head and it will unthread itself from the nut. That nut on the left side is deceiving.
