please tell me how to set timing on this engine. does the crank have a mark on it showing tdc and is it set on no.1 cyl. bought this bike and think timing is off, well, i know one belt is off one notch, so i want to start all over just to make sure. thanks

Check the how to section here and/or the maint. manual I think you can still download here. ( If Honda hasn't stopped them.) I assume your talking timing belts. The ignition timing can not be changed. There is a plug on the back left side with TDC and firing marks on crank, mark on crankshaft pulley and cam gears that all line up at #1 TDC.
