When looking through the hole you will see the notch in the hole line the T mark up with that notch the piston will be Top dead center and make sure your cam chain sprocket markes are lined up with the marks on the cam carrier

Its has a plug that you take out with a screwdriver should be on the left side in the case cover toward the top above the honda logo takes a big flatblade screwdriver.

If you found it it will take a allen wrench to remove and it is on the topside of the cover, you will have to rotate the motor over just bump it till you get the T mark lined up you can also put it in gear and rock the atv so it will move the crank.

agreed..find the sight plug..< sit's on top of the honda logo >..either has a allen head screw or takes a big wide flat blade screw driver to take out...bump the flywheel around until the T mark shows on the flywheel..line it up with the mark that is inside of the screw hole openeing..then go to the top..where your cam is..drop the cam in with lobes facing down < make sure you have the cam sprocket off the cam < easier to get chain on >..if you look at your timming chain sprocket..you will see some lines..or a punch mark..if it's lines..align these vertical to the top edge of the rocker box..if it's a punch mark..all you need to do is align that punch mark with the cam hole screw..they should align up..once you somewhat have everything lined up..with a tiny screw driver..stick the end of it through the chain..wrap the chain around the cam sprocket and set it on your cam..< the tiny screw driver is through all of this to keep you from droping the chain down into the engine >..if you got everything lined up..lobes still facing down...flywheel mark still on the T mark..pour alittle motor oil into the cam lobe pocket < this helps for the first start up >.take a light coat of yamabond or what ever you have handy for sealing.put that on your top.put it together..oh..all this goes alot easier if you have your timming chain slack adjuster out..sorry..forgot to mention this...then set your valves..make sure to put your flywheel inspection screw back in..crank it up..see how she does.
