I started to adjust my valves today and discovered that the timing marks on the exhaust cam shaft and the marks on the rotor do not align. When the marks on the cam shaft are lined up the rotor has turned about 1 or 2 degrees past the LT mark. Is this normal or is this a problem? How would I go about lining everything back up? If everything's alright as is how would I time the points? On the mark or a little past the mark? Thanks for all your help and please forgive my ignorance. I'm trying to learn as I go. The bike is a K6 if that makes any difference.

You may be mistaken about the timing mark on the cam - there are several marks on most of them, all of which could be mistaken for the correct mark.

Does the bike run?? If it runs ok, you're probably misinterpreting the marks.
If they are indeed not lined up, then you have a big job ahead - pull the engine, break the cam chain, yada yada........

To set the timing, read this - http://www.hondatwins.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=883
