Question about kawasaki Motorcycles
I wanted to find out what marks are used when setting up the timing of the cams. No1 cyl I take is on the right as you sit on the bike. I have the mark set to C and the piston is at tdc.and the cam lobes are pointing slightly away from vertical. I was looking to see if I could get a picture of which marks are used for each cam Its an EN400 Kawasaki 86

SOURCE: We removed the cam
Take the cam out and put the piston at TDC
Look at the cam with the cam gear facing you.
Turn the cam until both lobes are down(on the bottom of the cam)
Look at the cam gear, there should be 2 marks across from each other at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock
Those marks need to be parellel to the head when you set the cam in the head, carefully place the timing chain around the cam gear, trying not to move the cam.
Once you have the chain on, push the cam down in its slots in the head and look ate the timing marks on the cam gear.
They should be parellel with the head, and straight across from each other.
Recheck that the piston hasn't moved and your still on TDC.
If all is good put the rockers/valve cover on and timing chain tensioner in. Tighten the cover to specs then adjust your valve clearances to specs and your done with the timing.

SOURCE: Cam timing
you have to make sure your piston is at TDC starting to go down into theintake stroke, and set it so the intake cam lobe is opening the intake valve as your piston reaches TDC.
