Hi everyone, so my partners is being such a pain right now. He’s recently brought it 2nd hand and it will not kick start... it really does struggle. It bumps with no problems and runs smoothly when bumped.
It’s had...
*new spark plug
*new cylinder
*new piston
*new valves (valves cut)
*re-shimmed
Its all timed corrected, it’s got plenty of compression, timing is fine on everything, the top dead centre line is lined up to the cam.
He has spent a lot on this bike already and he’s only rode it twice.
I have a 2014 and mine starts 2nd 3rd kick with no problems at all... his will just not start from a kick and we are running out of thoughts on what could be causing this bike not to start. Please any help or suggestions would go a long way for us to try.

Recheck every thing you say you've checked

i.e. beware of cheap Chinese plugs, and that timing isn't a tooth or two out

Fuel Pump /filters/ Injection system
ECU
