I am puttin the engine back together on my 500 and need to know the torque specs on the head and valve cover bolts.

I have a service manual on order but it's not here yet and I would like to get it put back together this weedend.

Honda Mechanic comes through again. Thanks a bunch for your informative posts! We all appreciate it.
I am replacing the cylinder head cover bolts on my 2014 Honda Shadow Aero VT750C. Already over-torqued and broke off one bolt, so this time being more careful. The manual says torque these to 88 inch-pounds...seems high to me, but maybe not?
