Help! Cam drive gear slipped!

Hi, new guy here, and I just bought a 2006 BMW K1200GT it had the cam chain rattle on startup. So I put it in for the winter and ordered the new tensioner. It came today and I got brave. It was a snap, I decided while there I would make sure that the plastic cam Guide thingy was installed (the previous owner said he did) I'm glad I took it off because one of the long cam chain slider guides was broken into about 6 pieces. Well as was fishing all that stuff out I know that the gear slipped at least a tooth or two. My question is without tearing the whole valve cover off is there any way to re-time just the lower sprocket somehow. I can't see any timing marks. I'm sure there's a way and it requires special tools. I don't dare try to bump the starter or try to start at all until I get this straightened out.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Are you saying all the slack went to the bottom gear (gravity) and the chain came off the teeth down there but no where else?
