What is the easiest way to find top dead center to adjust the valves on a TRX500Fa6 it doesn’t have a jerk cord so was wondering do I pull the spark plug an turn it over or is there an easier way ? Thank you for your response

There are a few degree of travel at TDC, you should be able to see/feel the valves unload. Make sure you are on the compression stroke.

So if it’s on the compression stroke will the valves be loose or tight ?

At TDC of the compression stroke the valves will both be closed. The rockers will not be pushing on the tops of the valves. The valves will be held closed by the springs. You should download the manual and follow the procedures. The valve to rocker clearance is very small on a Honda.
