I was putting a new piston in my 2012 grizzly 450 and somehow the timing chain has slipped off the bottom sprocket while setting timing.

Im hoping the only extra work I've caused myself is pulling the left side cover and flywheel. Can anyone confirm? This is one model I can't find much info on by searching.

Just pull the left engine cover. Should not need to pull the flywheel.
I have done this many times. I have never needed to pull the flywheel. A couple small picks or a small screwdriver can get it back in proper place.

Thanks for the info. Is there a guide to keep it from falling off on this model? Usually there is (plastic or metal) and im not sure if the chain bound up and bent/broke it.

You were correct. Did not have to pull the flywheel, just the cover. Got it back on and timed, just need to get it cleaned up and put back together. Thanks Again.
