Misfiring with new plugs!

OK I just got my bike back from a valve job and plug change and just finished putting everything back on, but when i went to crank it, the damn thing sounds like a 450 4wheeler...and wont indle. it just dies. It also takes me giving it gas to crank it. Anybody have any ideas?

The guy that did the work thinks he may have put the plug wires on in the wrong order. Would this cause it to act retarded?

Ok I will try, my first thought is not likely pluged in the wrong port the harness only allows enough wire to plug into the right plug. With that said very easy to think it's pluged in and it's not. Ask 1killer1litter came to my house and thought the engine blew a rod or something....we pulled the code and it was for a stick coil...removed the tank and sure enough the plug was not seated all the way.

Now help us help you was or was the cams removed, what work was actually DONE?

if the plug wires are in the wrong order it will do the same thing your describing. get a service manual and check see if there in the correct order. if not put em back the way they should be and not take your bike back to that mechanic again lol.

lol...if the stock wiring harness was not messed with it should be easy to see the flow of the connectors where the plug into but it is possible I suppose.

Also, BigCat you need to feed as much info. as you can like simple things are you even getting a F1 light.

There are marks on valve cover, lines, that dictate the orientation of the stick coil caps. Marks on the stick coils must match the line directions. Like Bloo said, the stock harness can't allow the wires to be wrong really.

Also confused if you had worked done then wouldn't you have at least tried to start the bike after you picked her up?....or was the bike just picked up put on a truck you got home and this happened?
