K1200 rs. Clutch component offset

Trying to understand the clutch component offset to balance a new clutch install
I see the markings on the pressure plates but donít see a mark on the clutch housing.
The only thing that stands out is one of the points that the clutch components are bolted to on the clutch housing is different. Iím guessing this will be the starting place for the components to be 120 degree offset.

You are instructed to not put the pressure plate back on where the original part was - turn the pressure plate 120deg and attach.

Be sure to put a new O ring when fitting the flywheel! Suggestion: use Dot 5 fluid in the clutch system. This fluid will not ruin the O ring up if there is a leak.

Good luck - let us know how this goes for you! It is NOT a small job...
