Also to set the valves after assembly and timing check:

The easiest way is to remove the spark plug, stick your finger over the plug hole and bump the starter until you feel the compression push on your finger Stop there, take a long screwdriver and stick it in the plug hole, take the timing caps off of the left case cover (stator) take you 17mm socket and pull bar and turn the engine COUNTER CLOCKWISE until the -T- mark is aligned with the index mark in the small hole. Hold the screwdriver while you are turning it over so 1. it doesn't bind and 2. so you can feel when the piston is at the top. This will be where you set the valve lash. You will set it to .004 intake and .005 exhaust. You want a tight drag on the feeler gauge too.
