I'm in Danbury if you need a hand loading it up to get it to a shop.

Mine did that when I installed the cam chain off by one tooth..Blue flames popping out the t-body. Re time it, you'll prolly be ok on the valves, one tooth shouldnt be enough out to bend a valve.

sounds like if you had someone to work on your bike that knows what they are doing this would had been lest trouble..... really, its better to have a shop that knows what they are doing for $300+ or a really good mechanic to work on it then doing it your self..
i am getting ready to work on it my self but to tell you the true its better for me to have someone with experience to work on it then me trying to see how to do it and if i something up then its going to cost me more then what i would had paid to have it done....

sometimes it works better if you do half the job and then have them do the hard part witch is putting it back together...

no been rude or an here just giving a good advice to anyone that may do the same thing... LIKE ME!! LOL....

hope you get everything taking care of... good luck!

oh.. by the way... everyone that have reply about the timing jumping are most likely right! that can cause some really expensive repairs.

do what patrick said, time it CORRECTLY and do a compression/leak-down test and see what has been done.

you could have bent 1 or 2 or 16 valves, or none at all. asking the question on a public forum will not get you that answer.

i have repaired several heads from people installing cct's with no knowledge of cc tension, timing, etc. chances are, you damaged a few valves. however, you could have gotten lucky.

BUY A REPAIR MANUAL, do the job right the first time.
I will not allow myself the weakness to lay aside responsibility of my actions to a higher power and write that weakness off as destiny. Vigilance, intelligence and discipline keep us alive out there.
Rest In Peace Chris Owens aka faster321, you will be missed...
