Is there a noticeable power gain from this? I know every bit helps. I've done major timing changes on auto's but never on a bike.

adjusting the valves only relates to cam timing and this only alters the ignition timing, therefore it wont effect your lashing the valves what-so-ever. i hope that makes sense

yes you are correct there.
but when you are adjusting your valves, you need all the valves to be closed, which means you are on the opposite side of the cam from the raised profile, which determines your lift and duration. so from top dead center 5, 10, or even 15 degrees one way or the other the cam will have the same "flat" profile as it does at true tdc. at those points the cam is still the same circle and has not start to ramp up to the cam profile. i hope this makes sense.
you can always toss a screwdriver in the spark plug hole and find tdc

Has anyone tried toluene/xylene or race gas with very aggressive timing advances? If so, what were the gains. I'm curious to try this.
