Just double check your connections and hoses. All engine and frame bolts torqued. Make sure your oil is topped off and coolant. Start, check for leaks, adjust idle, clutch and throttle cable if needed, and warm up the engine. Shut down let cool down then check fluid levels again. That's all I can think of on the top of my head.

I would turn it over with the spark plugs out to make sure the top end is not full of oil
