An old XS 1100,
ye now theres a classic good old bike(my long lost love was a Z1R II)
This bike is unusual in it runs clockwise(from left) with its cam chain tensioner at the front.The marks are on the cam sprockets. Plus the crank position needs to be top dead centre compression on number 1 cylinder.Crank position ID marks, lets see, If I remember correctly are behind the L/H engine cover.
As for your manual(a motorcycles&owners best friend) were available aftermarket.Clymer is one brand and Haynes the other.To locate one try your local accessory dealer, the net/web/e-bay or try the classifide section of you favourate bike magazine(usually at the back).
Hope this is of some help

The cams are numbered 1 through 4 starting at the rear going towards the front. The new oil pumps do not have to be timed like the '76 and earlier models did. Install #1 cam, install #3 and #4 cams and time them with each other then install the #2 timing it with the pinion gear, the #1 and the #3 cam.
