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.

Also when at tdc everything lines up on top end except for flywheel mark doesnt line up on case mark.pickup coil instead lined up with raised edge on flywheel either idk if that's normal or not.?

First time I test drove it I actually scared myself which gave me a healthy dose of respect for it.

My 2007 ds650 has a similar starting problem, but not as extensive. I can push start Mine anytime and it will start but when I go to use the starter it just spins and sometimes makes a grinding sound not sure what exact parts I need.

      Working on a bayou 220 that has been ran extremely hard it's whole life. Literally had almost an inch thick dirt/oil covering the motor. Yeah that bad. Surprisingly it runs though. I cleaned the carb and tank multiple times. They're clean enough to eat off of. Readjusted valve lash and set timing. Was about 3 teeth off. It cranks good and runs good only problem is I have to cover the carb intake basically choking the hell out of it for it to start. The com choke works fine. It does this each time I start it regardless of temperature both ambient or motor. Wth? Compression is at 115psi I get 130s if I put a little oil in the piston chamber. Please help. Thanks

      My Honda Fourtrax won't start. The starter is kicking the engine over, but it won't start. It sat for about a year while I was living away, so I thought it might have been bad gas. I completely drained the fuel, flushed the fuel lines and filled it with fresh gas. However, still nothing. It started and ran fine the last time I used it. Any suggestions on how to diagnose this? It could be fuel or electrical at this point. Is there an easy way to rule one or the other out? Thanks

      I have an older 1980s Suzuki quadrunner red lt 4wd (250)
      so just finished putting it all back together and was running fine just needed to adjust the rebuilt carb
      bf decides to hook up an air chuck to the gas tank because it got a shot of air in the gas line well 120psi didn’t agree with any of the parts including the new carb 
      end result : new battery new carb now it just clicks (one single click) won’t turn over 
      hard to pull start gets hung up (unless I remove the spark plug ) gas flooded out the first time but now does nothing purchases a new starter waiting the arrival 
      could there be damage to the crank shaft or pistons etc? Or install the new starter and try to fire it up ? What caused the starter to die after he flooded everything with gas was working fine. 
      Thank you
