set the cylinder you are working on TDC and adjust.

biggest mistake is people using the wrong flywheel timing mark. it's the line about 5mm to the left from the F and R marks. not the line that's on the letter.

its fairly easy once you have done it a few times.

.004-intake .006 exhaust.

it's a pain to get the feeler in there so loosen the nuts and screws first.

I usualy turn it till the exhaust opens, and then barely starts to close and adjust the intake. And do the reverse for the exhaust. I do this cause sometimes the timing plug is a bitch to get off, or it is stripped out. I have never had negative issues arise from doing it this way.

I dont know about the 650 but on my 750 it is much easier to do the rear if you remove the battery and box.

I do it the same way. I just crank it until the valve is fully closed. but telling someone how to do it the easy way. forget about it.

I remove the inspection cover. Then the valve covers.

I get a socket on the bolt behind the stator cover.

I spin it counter clockwise. I almost see the F or R, and the fooker then just spins right past it. So I slowly do it again, trying to get it to stop at F or R and it just spins right on by..

So I just watched the valves and adjusted then after they closed like the others suggested.

Here is a website that had pictures. Its on a V, but pretty much same motor as you got. http://www.700v.com/valves.htm

Am I correct in assuming thr front valves r the intake and the rear 1's r exhaust?

The intakes are the ones towards the throttle bodies or carbs. Exhaust is the outside ones where the exhaust head pipes come out.
