990 valve check without throttle cable adjustment?

Im reading up on the valve check procedure, and just wanted to double check...
Can you remove the throttle bodies without altering the throttle cable adjustment?

Spark Plug

I completed a valve adjustment two weekends ago. I thought my Goldwing spark plug tool would work but it didn't. I had an old spark plug socket and took it to my bench grinder and just evenly ground off at bit around the entire socket. It works perfectly and is now in my bike tool pouch.

The interwebs made me too nervous about that spark plug tool, turns out a regular ole 14mm deep well socket worked great to remove the LKAR8BI9.

Really? What brand of socket was that? Was it free to turn or did it drag on the walls?

I used a regular deep socket on my 2011 as well, worked perfectly.
