One of the bolts holding the cam bridge down on my bike was bent. Obviously a factory defect bolt. Couldn't even fix it with a die. Apparently the person who did the first valve check didn't notice it and messed up more than one threaded hole. A couple helicoils later and a new bolt all is fine. Be sure everything fits together smooth. The bolts should screw-in all the way - pretty much by finger - then use a good torque wrench to snug them up. It's easy, once the bolt starts OK to want to go ahead and seat it- even if it's a little sticky feeling - but don't do it if it doesn't feel right.
