Called my dad who told me it doesn't matter because the valves determine which tdc your at. When I put the bike back together and started it up I noticed a new whining sound coming from the top of the engine. Bike seemed to be running fine and I didn't hear any knocking sounds. No metal in the oil or anything.
So here is my question. Does it matter if you set the valves on the compression stroke? Could not doing this cause damage to my engine or cause a whining noise from my valves?
I'm on a 2005 wr450f. Any input is greatly appreciated as I would love to get back on the trail.
