Suzuki g10 and g13 engines in any variety have issues with head gaskets or head cracking. You may not have found any information because there isn't an issue that would be on the table so to speak.
The g10 suffers from exhaust valves burning as a common issue, but that doesn't affect any of the g13 engines.
Give your engine a normal amount of time to warm up and don't beat on it cold as with any engine, but don't worry about head cracking or head gasket issues.

I've built hundreds of these heads, probably more than anybody, and have never seen a single cracked head. This NOT an issue with these motors.
