Hand turning a CBR600 Engine

On Friday, I'm going to a salvage yard to look for a donor engine for our project. I want to hand turn it to make sure the internal mechanicals are sound before I purchase it. I know it may vary according to the year but what is the basic approach to hand turning the engine?

Do I rotate it at the output shaft or magneto drive? somewhere else?

Kind regards.

I'm an ENGINEAR ENGANEER ENGINERE I'm good with math...

how insightful

there is an inspection cover on the right side of the bike. you need a 17mm socket to remove it.

behind it you'll get access to the crank. you can turn it clockwise using a 14mm socket. you'll also need an extension as it is recessed behind the cover.
