It's not necessary to remove the side case just take out the little plug and look through it then put the bike in 5th gear and push it backwards til the 'T' mark comes into view.
Make sure you turn the engine over backwards a few revolutions first by pushing the bike back this makes sure that the auto decomp is disengaged.

By the way, how much adjustment have your Xr's needed?
I've done 2200 miles on mine and they haven't needed any!

My xr650r's valve clearances were first checked
at 3500 miles, they needed very little adjustment. I next checked them at 8500 miles
and again they were within spec.
If I'm bored next winter I might check them

cheers, Craig
