Hello i had the timing chain tensioner out of my bike and the crank got turned a revolution or so and the chain skipped a couple teeth on the cams. How do i make sure the piston is at top dead center to line the cams back up ? i would assume there is top dead center for intake and exhaust stroke. And would assume the piston has got to be top dead center on compression stroke. I know to look through the hole on the side case and line up the marks mine has 3 marks within 1/8 of each other on the rotor witch one do i line up and make sure the piston is at top dead center to line the cams up ? Thanks
The ignition fires on both TDC's so it doesn't matter when setting up the cams whether you are on compression or exhaust stroke. The first 2 marks on the flywheel make a H and the third a I. Use the third mark.

Double check by making sure all your dots line up like the manual says and your good to go. Worked for me when I did the exact same thing you did.
