Default Timing Issue Newbie Help Please?

2009 Sporty 1200 xl custom 2,700 miles, was timed perfectly but found pinched crankcase hose causing pressure to build at the oil tank. remedied that problem. but in the process had to remove side cover, during removal one of the timing gears stayed in the cover side and came out. now no matter how many times we set the timing (per service manual) the sporty has a slight consistent miss, or backfire? actually thought I briefly saw the last miss on the intake side?? any help here would be greatly appreciated?
thanks in advance for any insight here
