Full maintenance usually requires more than valve adjustments. Some of which are easier with the tank gone.

Like I said, I prefer to disassemble, work on the bike and reassemble. Having the tank parked on the head while I still need to do a valve job requires me to partly reassemble while working on the bike. Which opens the oppertunity to forget something, possibly requiring disassembly again. Just my way of working on the bike. Strip it all off, work on it, put it back together.
