this is a new bike for me and i put a crank in it and forgot to look at the timing marks... i think?? on the intake, the cam marked "I" should point to the intake side of the eng. with one mark straight up, and on the exhaust it would be the "E" pointing to the exhaust side of the eng and the other mark pointing straight up.... but this is only a guess... if any one knows for sure it would help me a bunch thanks.

Well you have the cams on the right side of the engine, I = intake, E = exhaust.

Any questions just ask.
Good luck
