I really need some help with my new pitster pro lxr. It has a aftermarket 155ho crate engine and a new v2 race head. When I took off the stock head I didn't set my cam sprocket or flywheel to tdc. I have spent hours searching on line for any information I can find. I set my flywheel to tdc and I'm having problems with the cam chain sprocket. The marking on the sprocket says FL and has 2 notches on across the sprocket. When I installed the cam I put the first lobe towards the cylinder side and tried timing it. I don't know where to set the cam to the right timing and the sprocket has no other markings to line up to Tdc. I have attached a couple pictures of the sprocket and cam. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can help me with this problem.

Those two lines will need to be perfectly horizontal buddy.

So magneto at 12 o'clock and the two cam sprocket lines at 3 and 9 o'clock.

And obviously both cam lobes pointing towards the piston.

Thanks for all your help. I Re-timed it tonight and it started right up first kick. Runs strong with a lot of compression. Can't wait to ride this new lxr. last year's pitster was a stock x5. I installed pro circuit exhaust with the v2 race head. aftermarket pro circuit forks and elka rear shock. I finally have my dream bike. Thanks again for everything.

Post some pics up bud!! :)

I got the same setup. It's wicked.

Go the 184 bore down the track and you will have a good reliable motor. :)
