valve cover bolts ?

has anyone had a problem with the valve cover bolts stretching and breaking off in the head ? I adj. my valve the other day ,went installing the valve cover bolts,torquing to 14nm it didn't feel right then snap (&%$#@!) was I pissed,looked at the other two bolts, they where stretching at the base also, called the honda dealer for replacements, hondas out of stock and back order no ship date giving so I'm stuck riding to 250 for a time. Am I the only lucky one that this has happen to? :)

Same thing here although I was torqing them to 9nm as it says in my workshop manual. Decided not to torque them now.
