Hello all, I was adjusting the valve clearance on my 2006 VStar, when I set the flywheel to TDC the rear cam sprocket was not aligning properly. I turned it several times with the same result.  Is this something I should worry about or is it possible it was just assembled incorrectly?  Please see pictures.

Thanks, so just after I posted I realized that I was setting the flywheel TDC for the rear cylinder but looking at the cam gear on the front one, when I opened the rear cylinder it lined up perfectly.  Facepalm moment.
