This is assuming you haven't done any full rotations or if you have that you are back to the original starting position. Just start over..I'd take the belts off; is the crank back on the mark you made before you started?? if not put it there. Now if you haven't rotated the cam wheels so you know you are still on correct compression stroke just turn them back to their marks put the belts on this time keeping the wheels on their marks..then before rotate it the starter turn by hand a few times to be sure the valves aren't hitting the pistons.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
