Don't use a screwdriver or anything solid in the plug hole. When you do find TDC on compression stroke double check that both valves have that tiny amount of play in them before you try to adjust. If either one doesn't have play you might be on the wrong stroke.

Thanks man!!! Just what I was looking for, thought it might be something like that, but wasn't sure.

Ride safe, Scott.
