I am going over everything in my head. I remember when I was test cycling the motor after putting all the working parts together to make sure nothing binded, that the compression cam was making noise.
I was thinking about it in the shower and haven't looked under the valve cover but I think this is the next place im going to look. The manual doesn't say much about it.

On the positive note, the motor starts super nice and with out hesitation unlike before. :-)

Again thanks for the help.
Another thing you may want to check is whether the cam bearings are seated properly. When I was assembling the top end on my 250x the grooves in the cam bearings did not want to seat in those races by themselves.
When telling the truth keep one foot in the stirrup.
