The issue with that is that if you adjust the exhaust valves off the wrong TDC you can adjust them too tight. How you know is that your starter has a little bit of trouble getting through the start. Not sure how/why this happens but its talked about over on KTM talk... I adjusted my valves using that technique and it happened once. Thought it was the battery (that is why that bike has that badass battery, Kev) but turned out to just be the valves too tight...
