How many teeth off was the belt? Normally one either way won't cause mechanical damage but 10 degrees sounds like a lot. Be sure to hand turn you engine to feel for any problems before you hit the starter. Hand turning slowly won't do any damage if you made an error but hitting the starter would bend valves. The best place to turn the engine over is really on the crankshaft pulley bolt. Since it's connected a lot closer to the pistons with only a connecting rod between the crank and disaster you'll get a lot more sensitive feel. You'll also have less leverage so it's less likely damage will occur if there's an error in timing. Be sure to remove the spark plugs too so you won't be fighting compression which will make the engine stiffer to turn over.

It was 2 off I think, there wasn't any hangups or pinging when I was just trying to get it running earlier when I was hand turning the engine over before I started messing with the timing.

Now I'm just trying to tune it up and overcome backfires out the exhaust.

Next step will be to adjust the timing on the points and make sure it's correct.
Then make sure the carbs are synced up.
And if this fails....I'm thinking maybe the valves are leaking a little too much on the exhaust stroke.

For a 1978 GL1000 that's been sitting for several years that I just got a week or so ago it's coming along.

If the backfiring is occuring when you back off the throttle it could be the air cut off valve(s) if the 1000 has them similar to the 1100 and 1200. Their purpose is to prevent backfiring with decelleration.

I do not think there is much (or any)differences in the process...
