Align the chain with the colored links on the chain over the marks on the cams.Twin cams Have a small hole on the cam gears that will align with a hole in the front of head.Crank Gear has a pip mark that goes straight up.colored links on crank go to the 5 & 7 Oclock position on the lower crank gear with pip mark on crank gear at 12:00.Hope this helps

SOURCE: valve timing check
Chain drive. Unless the engine's been apart, why would the cam/valve timing change?
Valve clearances are another matter, and unless you want to remove the camshafts, get a mechanic who has the proper Suzuki tool to do them for you. You can measure the clearances, but the shims are between the cam lobe and the valve bucket, and the special tool holds the bucket down whilst changing to a thicker or thinner shim.
