so i got this biek off a buddy and wen i put gas in the cylinder and kick it over it backfires out the exhaust then i keep kicking and nothign so i googled it and it says for the timing u must line up a arrow on the magneto to a triangle on the case and the piston would b top dead center but wen i line them up the piston seems to be in the midle of the cylinder , so my question is , does that mean i must open the botom end and move the conecting rod on the crank ?

well my first thought would be has the bikes motor ever been taken apart?
because the honda trail bikes have bullet proof motors.
so ask your buddy if the motor has ever been rebuilt or taken apart?

i beleive the motor was taken apart to change the head gasket, but , i dont understand why the botom end was taken apart, but its the only thign i can think of that would make the piston be at the wrong spot and screw up the timing
