I've never noticed this before but when I adjusted my hydro's levers to be close to the bar for my small hands, I notice a decrease in power. When I adjust it out, it seems that the power returns. Is it all in my mind or does the reach adjustment also affect the power/modulation for Shimano hydro's? On my Hayes hydros, there isn't much of an effect (but then again, the Hayes HFX9's does not seem to adjust as close to the bar as the Shimano units)...

I haven't noticed any on my XTs... and I haven't adjusted the reach on my LXs (still at the stock position)... if I am able to ride tomorrow and adjust the reach, I will let you know if I feel any difference in power...
