The serivce manual says to turn the engine by removing the center plug an the mag cover and turning it with a socket. I choose to put the bike in 3rd gear and turn the engine that way. either one should work just fine. Remember to remove the spark plugs to make the engine easy to turn over. Ensure that the engine is on a compression are looking for a line with a "T". align this symbol with the center of the hole.

Thats why I put it in there. I hope no one skip that step. If they do they should be able to tell as soon as they try to fire it up.
