Easiest way to rotate engine on an 860?

Going to adjust my valves, what is the easiest way to rotate the engine? Seems like I must need a special tool?

With the plugs out the cheap and easy way is to put the bike in 3rd gear and turn the engine with the rear wheel.You do have to watch the action of the valves and the piston position through the plug hole to see if you are at TDC.
