05 Predator 500 timing

I was putting new piston rings in yesterday and I lost the timing. I did mark were the timing chain and the cam gears met, but the chain came off the bottom sprocket and i didn't know it. I turned the crank to get the piston back in the jug when i noticed everything. Please help I need to know how to set the timing.
