Opposite of tightening but not critical to do criss-cross.

Outside on one side, outside on other end, small lower center then big centers. Leave one or two center bolts in loose so when breaking seal the head does not wind up on the floor.
This is what I do
Local and need repair help with your 1500, Valkyrie or ST please PM

Be careful you also undo the very small bolt at the bottom of the cylinder heads between the exhaust ports. This is often forgotten and can cause a lot of stress trying to get the heads off!!!!
Better download the manaul from this site as you will need it when you put then thing together

Thanks, put in the new head gaskets without a hitch and she runs great once again.
