Got everything back together yesterday and went to start the bike. It kicked over, fired and then promptly stalled. I hit it again and it fired up and was running sorta ok.. then I shut it off and the motor stopped immediately. I know they stop quicker then say a car engine, but man it was quick. Tried starting again after and it sputtered and stalled again. This time I saw oil leaking out and noticed I pinched the gasket on the cover in one spot behind the radiator and I also pinched a spark plug gasket. Had to order two new gaskets for there, head cover gasket is ok. But now I'm wondering what the hell made it run like that, one spark plug boot was really hard to get on like it was binding, which I think it was on the crushed gasket, it was that cylinder as well. Maybe it wasn't seated making it run on one cylinder? Waiting on parts to try again, I tripled checked the cam timing and the valve clearances, all tolerable now. No FI light either, other then the normal coming on when you first turn the key and start.
