f4i timing/cam chain installation help

can anyone give me some tips on how to install a timing/cam chain? i've bought a new stock chain and im trying to get it to go over the 2nd sprocket on the cams but it seems like there isn't enough slack to get it to go on. any advice would be appreciated, hopefully if i get this on then my bike will finally start again and ill be able to ride after 3 months of painfully waiting.

Do you have the CCT and the cams out of the bike?

Put the chain over the sprockets and then torque down the cam journals.

Do you have a manual?
Make sure you put it in time.

yes, i have the manual, made sure all the lines are matches up. do i put the cover on over the cams and screw the bolts in a little to keep it on or do it with the cover off? this is a to put on. if i had the money to take it to your shop i would, but im broke.

ok i got it all timed perfectly. all the wiring hooked up correctly. tried to start the first couple of times but it wouldnt fire. changed the spark plugs and it fired up but sounded week and wouldnt stay running and the it sounded really weak with fire coming out of some of the exhaust, maybe do to too much fuel....? i also took the coils off too make sure the engine was turning over easily, it was. can't think of any other problems
