Rebuilding my top end ?'s 2008 650

I searched the site looking for a manual to download and can't find anything. I see old threads but they no longer have the link for the download!
So I have the cam shaft marks lined up, lobe facing forward, piston at top dead center. Having no manual I question where the marks are on the flywheel? Other bikes I've seen cam sprocket marks and a dot on the cam chain. I'd just guess the chain doesn't care where it goes and as long as the piston is at top dead center and the cam is set on the marks I would be ready to assemble or tear it down? Anything I may be missing here?
Thanks in advance

Not a bad job rebuilding the top end, only thing the manual fails to tell you is the head bolts can't be reused. New bolts are required on a cylinder, or head removal. I found out the hard way by snapping off several bolts. When setting the timing, I usually pull the stator cover off, and use the nut to rotate the engine. Also the timing marks are on that side so it works pretty good. I had a local shop make up some studs for my engine, I now use 3 studs, and one factory bolt on the cylinder and head.

Been searching the online manual and can't seem to find any timing marks on the fly wheel side. I took that black cover off. Only thing I see is a hole and a tiny mark on the fly wheel nut. Am I missing something?

There is a socket plug on the passenger side of the engine, remove that and you are looking at the flywheel. Just make sure you are on the compression stroke when you line up the mark. After I get mine to TDC I put a socket and breaker bar on the flywheel nut to keep it from moving, rests perfect on the fuel tank! Always glad to help someone across the lake! LOL

It's on the passenger side and takes an allen wrench. You'll see the mark on the case itself and on the flywheel.
