Timing issues, Help!
Ok, so it's been a while since I've been on here, shame on me I know right, I've been super busy. So I'll start from the beginning. Bought this 2003 V-Star 1100 back in March of 2015 and it wasn't running, it needed a carb rebuild and a new starter clutch. Has 10K miles on it. So I've rebuilt the carbs, and replaced the starter clutch. I'm now trying to set the timing and am having trouble. Here's my issue:
While replacing the starter clutch I barred the motor over without it being attached to the rear cam chain. Therefore it's out of time. So.....
I have started over, popped off the right side and set the front cylinder to TDC. All the timing marks align on the clutch side and are correct so I know for a fact the front cylinder is right and at TDC.
I have looked all over, looked at how to videos, peoples old posts on here, nothing tells me the info I need. I need to know once I get the front cylinder to TDC and all the marks align, what steps do I take from there to put the rear cylinder into time. Can anyone explain this to me? it's the difference between the bike sitting in the garage or riding down the highway. I feel like someone has to know the steps I need to take to get the rear cylinder into time by already having the front at TDC. HELP!!! Also I never touched the right side, and the left side Cam chain which connects to the scissor gear had only rotated, not taken apart so it's in factory condition.
