Just installed Athena BB kit....problem!!

I remove the plug. Turn the engine over with the starter again....no knock. Am I doing something wrong? I am running the same plug as before. NGK9EK.
Has anyone else came across this issue. I've searched but found nothing.

(They make some funky sounds without the air filter, exhaust installed)
Put the plug back in and SLOWLY kick it through a cycle with your foot and see if it feels normal, and not binding up.
You may want to double check your timing as well

Recheck your piston, rod and ring installations as well as timing, cam chain tensioner and valves.
I imagine something isn't "tight" when under a compressed load. Maybe piston pin bearing?
