That depends on how far you wanna go. If its a daily commuter, wouldn't bother. Not sure on cam, i'd have to find mine and have a look.

Just get the head skimmed, so its clean and flat. Use new head bolts too, the old ones were prone to cracking under the heads, and/or stretching.
How many K's on it? If it has more than 200,000km on it, might be a good idea to get the valves reground, and new valve stem seals fitted too.
And replace the O'rings for the cam chain tensioner assembly.

When you sit the Exhaust gasket on the head, you'll notice that there is about 2-3mm of metal inside the gasket, remove this, with a slow taper towards the inside, try not to take off too much on the floor of the port.
The inlets are usually pretty good, just a touch up & buff smooth.
I didn't know if you were a novice or not. sorry.
Why did you need to pull the head off anyway?

Just a little thing to do, clean as best you can, the side of the block, then paint it gloss black, if it leaks in future, you'll know.
Have you had hassles with a Clevo running too hot?
