Couple points:

I would do the valve adjustment prior to changing the oil, because if you let any schmeg into the top end you effectively filter it while warming the bike to drain the oil.

Also you should only do a valve adjustment on a cold motor. Running it right before doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

I've also found that if I can get the valves to "wiggle" a little when I'm in the right spot to adjust them.

none of us is as dumb as all of us
