WR426 won't start after valves adjusted.

Brief history, Bike started 1st kick when cold, but when hot i was having to kick the crap out of it to get it started. even using hot start.
Went in to the local yammy dealer and was advised to check the air intake rubbers for splits/wear, cause nothing else has changed on the bike.
Also advised to check the valves out, there was some adjustment required to the valves but not much.
Didn't find any splits in intake rubbers, so put the bike back together.
Used my electric right boot to try and get it started, a couple of times it almost fired up but after 20 mins i was feed up.
The kick start seemed a little stiffer to kick than normal.
Had to walk away at this point before i lost my cool with it.
Had another go at it a couple of hours later no luck.
Any ideas guys? cheers Rich.

Re-check the cam timing, confirm you have correct cold clearances.

Starting to think that having to kick the crap out of it when hot is acceptable now, cause at least it would run! and when it did run it was perfect, kept up with and out performed much newer machinery.
