If you torqued them to the right spec, in the correct order, they should be fine.

Are you going by the Honda book?

I will guaranty none of them will move at all if you don't loosen them first, just a little, maybe 1/4 turn.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Retorque is not necessary but if you do torque them back to the spec in the manual.

If your Clymer instructions match this, then you should be good to go.

Anything else, do it again.
