Sorry, but I have not read an easy way to install that part. I waited till I needed to pull the intake box and replace spark plugs before I did mine. With the plugs out I was able to roll the bike while in gear to get the valves in the correct position. J&P cycles has a chrome cover for the part if you do not want to deal with it.

When I did mine, I didn't turn the engine over, mainly because I forgot to do it. I read the instructions a few days earlier, and when I finally got around to doing it, I unscrewed the old one, grabbed the instructions to see how to swap the guts, and read about rotating the engine over. I didn't want to turn it without the tensioner in there, and I didn't want to put the old one back in, so I figured "screw it" and put the new one in there. I have about 2000 miles on it since then, and it's still in good shape. So, take that as you will.
