How do I set my timing

I have a 1997 honda xr200r I just installed a new wiseco piston and ring kit but I can't get the timing to set right does anyone know how to set the timing please help

Set your piston all the way up at the top of the cylinder at top dead center and the cam should have a mark on the sprocket that lines up with a mark on the head.There should be a timing plug on the same side as the gear shifter of the engine.pull it and you'll have a line or  T that will tell you when your at TDC (top dead center) with the piston.
