Cylinder head mounting

I will put on my 2 cylinder heads, after rebuild. Head have been milled, cams, rocker arms exanged and new OEM head gaskets.

Mother Honda says, that cylinder head bolt must be torqued to 53-57 Nm.

Is it a good idear to retighten Again after a warm up ?

I would say, absolutely YES.
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.
