My 2000 r6 slipped the timing chain because it was too loose. after getting a new chain, guides and Tensioner i tried to set my timing and came across these cams. i'm a second owner and this isn't the first time i came across aftermarket shit. Doesn't look like any of the cams shown in the stock photos for this bike and has no lines or marks.

can anyone identify theses cams and how to set the timing?

I can't see your photo from here, but I have run into the same situation before. I just did my best to set it by eye. Rotate the cams into approximate position, and get the crank set to TDC on cylinder #1. Then align again but move one cam by one tooth. It's a pretty noticeable difference. I referenced photos from a shop manual to compare the positions I was in, and I managed to get it right on the first try. But I went slow and took a lot of time deciding that I had it right.
