valve adjustment range

I am doing the valve adjustment on my 2010 multistrada 1200. all my valve clearances are at the low end but still in the MFG's suggested range. Just curious if anyone would recommend making adjustments to get to a certain clearance? should i shoot for the high end for the opener clearance and the low end for the closer clearance?
Opener range is .10-.25mm i am at the .15mm range on all the openers.
Closer range is .05-.15mm and i am in the .10mm range for the closers.
thanks in advance.

To get the most time between adjustments bring the closers closer to .05. . . openers are good

Where are you ate mileage wise and have you checked and adjusted before. Just wonder as I picked up a 2010 last fall with 9000 miles.

Did you replace the belts during your valve adjustment?
Cheers
