It sight glass is for seeing the timing marks with a strobe light when setting . it shouldn't be left on all the time there should be a alloy screw cap fitted

Sorry I am mistaken. It's early. You are right about the timing cap being slotted. There should be some on ebay.

They are $12 on Amazon, a real OEM item.

They are $6.10 from Honda itself. https://www.hondapartshouse.com/oempart ... -valve-adj

Might be a better fit/finish than a knockoff.

Altho the knockoff appears to come with the needed O ring.
