Didn't bother to read all the posts, but I can add to the falang telling the Clymer manual is WRONG!
I had my engine split some 15 years ago and put it back together according to book. Some valve hit it's piston when I tried to turn the crank (by hand fortunately!). Luckily I had pictured what everything looked like before I took it apart. As Phil, and others, say: All cams go in on the 1-3 mark and all cam sprockets align with cam cover face. I ran my bike 60000 km after doing this, and now I am at the same stage again after having the cylinders rebored.
90000 km is just a start...

My dim and distant memory is that Clymer didn't even get everything right in their manual for the CB175, so what's the chance with a V4? :-/
If I'm reading this, I've obviously mistaken my computer for a bike again!
