It’s most likely 180 deg out of time. It’s very easy to make this mistake. 

There are also a few different marks on the flywheel. Make sure that you have the correct mark and make suite it’s on the compression stroke when aligning with the cam. 

Aside from the few things listed above the only other things I can think of is the timing chain is jumping off of the sprockets ? Or the pick up coil is loose delivering the spark at the wrong time.

Yea figured it was out of timing as well but set it tdc then aligned cam marks parell to head cams facing away from each other.. There is only one mark on flywheel. Other marks are lil punch marks about 4 or 5 of them around flywheel..tensioner is working properly so its not jumping teeth..sounds like it sparking at wrong combustion..how would i check to see if its not 180 out?

So let’s back up for one second and recap.

Did you pull the head off of so why?

Did the bike run while you own it?

reason I’m asking is in my experience I’ve missed things during a rebuild back in the day and had to go back to see where I failed.  

You are missing something. I looked at the manual and can see that there is only one timing mark that’s labeled “c” ? 

The  lobes state they should be facing downward and there is a small hole on tye cam sprocket that should be on top ? 

I would go back double check that. If all looks right then I would look at tye triggger cool maybe it’s loose ? 

Can you post a few pics of the timing marks you see on tye engine as well as the top end cam and sprocket ?

Yes i pulled head off to instalm new shims.no guy said all he did was changed starter clutch n it would never fire for him after that so i reset timing n still nothing. Cams dowward as in tapered part touching valve buckets? If thats the case then yea there off. I have them at 45° facing away from each other as cam sprokets marks are parallel to face of head.

Cam lobes facing down, sprocket marks parallel to the head cover and the sprocket should have a small hole on the top side about 1 o’clock ish.

I dont get what he was doing when he said he reaches his hand around on clutch side n rotates it.? Does the pick up coil have to be aligned up with that rasied edge on the flywheel. Cus the way i have it at tdc pick up coil isnt in center with it.

      So I’ve got a 400ex with a dg slip on and it’s super loud (louder than you would think for a slip on) and it’s annoys my neighbors and just everyone in general. So I would like to know who makes the quietest exhaust for it. I have the stock muffler but I’d rather sell it than put that back on. thanks!

      After looking at the wire diagram I saw the blue w/black stripe wire is coming from the neutral and reverse lights looking for ground thru the neutral and reverse switches. If it finds ground, the lights come on. The same wire also comes from the neutral relay looking for ground at the same neutral and reverse switches. So it was easy to trick the relay into thinking the engine is in neutral all the time without having the light on all the time. Just cut the blue w/black wire at the relay and ground it. Easy
      Sorry the pics aren't better




      Now it starts in any gear and indicator lights work as they should.
