I would always adjust if even only one valve is tight. One a tiny bit loose I might think twice. It's not as bad as it seems if you have never done it before. Even an old gimmer like me managed it once I had rigged up a really bright light and dug out the super magnifying spectacles.

One thing that you have a very good chance of finding is an "odd sized" shim under that bucket.  The shims listed in the manual and sold over the counter are in increments of .05mm.  But the assemblers at Yamaha use shims in increments as small as .01mm, so it isn't unusual to find shims marked 178, or 183.  Gums up the math a little is all.
