There are two bolts in the cylinder head with allen key flat heads. They sit each side of the cam chain tunnel.
Just wondering what are they for, as I can't see without taking them out and didn't want to disturb them without knowing?

If you're looking at the large Allen type socket things that look like grub screws sitting flush-ish then you don't need to touch them.
I believe that they are blanking the holes that were used for cores for the water jacket in the initial casting process.
