I got lucky this time, sorta. I'm upgrading my 01 GSXR1000 to 03 ECU, so I have to pull the head to get the timing star/ cam chain gear off. The easiest way adjust the valves is with the head on the bench.

I have never worried about having the lobe perfectly opposite of the valve and been fine.

on my ktm 990 I put the cylinder at TDC cause the cam gear and timing gear have alignment marks so if it's really simple to r/r the cams if an adjustment is needed. the lobes point at 10 and 2 o'clock at TDC IIRC.

Why? You don't need the head off to pull those. Pull the oil sump and collector. Pull the CCT and cams, pull the clutch, alternator and starter setup.

Undo the two bolts for the cam chain guide and follower and pull them out the top. Remove the star from behind the clutch, you have to pull the shift rod. you can do that in the bike. I agree that working on it is far easier on the bench.
