Hi everybody
I have a problem with my r1. I can not understand which dots I have to align. Do I must the dots from sprockets align with the crankcase (the yellow) or the dots from camshafts with camshafts covers(red)? My engine is at TDC. Is there a better tutorial or a video than service manual out there

Let me see #1. If #1 is closed then yea. To know from here, I'd have to check the valve position in the manual. #1 is the chamber farthest from the cam chain.

Then you're gold. Another way to tell is to look at the lobes. They will look like Mickey Mouse ears because they will be facing away from each other.

You have the head off though, so you can just look at the valve face.

Did you solvent test the valve seats?
