leave valves \"loose\" for racing?

I saw this on an ebay auction. can anyone tell me what the purpose would be to leave your valves loose??

I don't even know what that means.

"Bike was taken in for all scheduled maintenance and tune-ups. At 15,000 mile scheduled maintenance, valves were purposely left loose for racing purposes but can easily be reversed."

he means the shim buckets have some extra space, a lil more tolerance for the constant high rpms
