I am assuming that you are talking about a XR650R.

If you don't already have a shop manual look here:

For accuracy, you ALWAYS want to check the valves when the engine is stone cold.

On the 650R, do they tighten (a la VW) or loosen over time?

They tend to tighten up over time, particularly the intake valves.
