I cannot for the life of me get the cover off to see the crankshaft timing mark. So to make this real easy, it looks to be like the respective R or F on the camshaft is up and the sprocket marks level when the relative cylinder, R or F is at TDC.

Or... set Front piston to TDC and cam sprocket marks level and cam hinge with F pointing up. Repeat with Rear

Anyone see anything wrong with this method?

It looks like in the manual the timing marks should be at 9 0'clock position when you check the timing. So if the cylinder is at TDC see if the marks are there at 9 o'clock. and then there are 2 slash marks on the cam gear that lays flat with the head surface.

(at least that is what my older manual shows.)
