I have a 08 yz450f that I just did the top end on. Everything including new piston, new sleeve, and new cam chain, and the gaskets.. During the first start, the engine had a clanky knocking noise. It sounds like a piston slap, like a metal on metal sound. The sounds builds with the throttle.

Did you remember to release the cam chain tensioner from the retracted position?

New sleeve?  Did you actually have a new sleeve installed, or did you replace the cylinder and just calling it that?  What piston did you use, and what was the piston clearance?
