'98 WR400 fouling plugs after new parts

EDIT: William also said it common to have the outside punch marks level, and the inners point up a bit.

Here is my newest question as I sit waiting for the shop to attempt to diagnose it. If the stator got messed up some how by the cam chain, would I still be getting proper voltage? With my multimeter I appear to be getting the correct amount.

I know I'm impatient but I just got off the phone with them as I'm getting antsy watching my roommate ride everyday in the best riding weather of the year so far.
Anyways, the shop said they have still not been able to figure out what is wrong with the bike yet, but they are fairly certain that it is not the stator, and not the CDI. They did say that they are leaning towards valves being the issue. I have "recently" replaced the entire valve train so I'm hoping it's not the issue.
Anybody have any insight on this? I'm getting pretty desperate.
EDIT: They also said not timing or jetting to state the obvious.

This Friday will mark the 5th full week it's been at the shop.

Not much else to add, sorry. If they can't fix it, I'd take it somewhere else.

Would an intake or exhaust leak cause anything like this?
I just guessed that the people in this forum would be more knowledgeable about these bikes than the average shop and would be able to help me track this problem down quickly.
Also, I don't know why it ran great for an hour +, but now it won't run for more than 5-10 minutes. I'm still wondering if some of the RTV silicone sealant on the carb worked its way farther into the carb and is clogging something up.

I'm thinking the issue was a worn cylinder/piston. Either way I'm waiting on the last few bolts then it's fingers crossed...
