hello mate . it was on the left side right in the middle i havent took it off yet but you can see that its gone there because its black. the manual isnt very clear on the one i downloaded . if i undo the timming sproket and take that off hold the chain with some wire so it doesnt drop into the engine . replace the gasket then put timming marks to tdc and make sure cam lubes are facing down will that be ok . on the manual the photos are really dark so cant see then very well

That should work for you. It is not an difficult operation. A couple of hours at most if you are somewhat mechanically inclined.

...Just remember that the cam chain has a link that should be positioned on the cam sprocket when you break the chain.

Yes it looks like you will have to buy the split link in order to reassemble.
The 02-03 both use P.N. 200 309-01

If you post some pics we can help you ID the bike
