Doing that rotates the crank and cam chains in the forward direction, and ensures that the slack side (the side the tensioner is on) of the chain is slack, and allows the maximum room to install the tensioner body.

Thank You Poolside This did it.It took longer to get the bike in a higher gear than to get the bolt started!! I litteraly was trying yesterday for 4 hours trying to get that Bolt started.. Thank You all again for your advise & Help!!!
