was the carb redone while the bike was down, or is it the same as before the teardown?

This changes ignition timing.

Carb has been jet for Flagstaff, I had it apart and cleaned it up....float was stuck on Friday, took apart again....seems to be working correctly now.

Shop put it back on initally, then when I checked timing yesterday, I put it back on....I don't know who adjusted the valves....I am pretty sure that Premier (PHX) did not adjust the valves...basically they put on new head gasket and reinstalled the cam chain....buttoned the bike back up.

I will check the valves again. I have not tried to start any way other than kicking the bike over.

As I said before the bike started easily in Prescott.....very hard to start in Flagstaff...then tore bike down and replaced stator.....I know the bike will run...but so many changes now I don't know where the problem is located.

Oh....ok I see, but I don't completely understand what Taffy was saying about moving the stator.....restate in dumbass terms.

Did you inspect your piston rings?
I did not personally inspect the rings...but I don't feel that there was anything too bad that would inhibit the bike from running...there was a bit of scoring on the cylinder walls, but nothing a woods rider should have a problem with.

Are you sure the ignition timing is correct after the stator replacement? Taffy was suggesting to adjust the timing to see if it would help the starting issue.
At least thats the translation I got from my English to America (red neck) dictionary

Yes, I used LeFrog's photos to check the cam timing....it appears to be as it should be. Micky mouse ears at 10 and 2 o'clock position. Ignition timing...I don't know about that...I installed the stator when the engine was at TDC, I assume that means the ignition timing should be right....or is there something that I am missing.

I can't imagine anyone removing the valve cover and not readjusting the valves since the rockers are in the cover and the valves are in the head. Different gasket sealants can make a couple thousands difference. Is also hard to imagine a shop not starting and taking the bike for a test ride after working on it. You mention the valves being way off when you adjusted them and replaced the stator. You sure the motor was on TDC compression and not TDC exhaust when you adjusted the valves?

The shop only had the engine....I removed it took it down to PHX. And I made sure that the motor was on TDC compression because I read that step specifically in the users manual. Now I cannot be assured that I did the same when I installed the stator.....would that make a difference.....I am assuming so......should the motor be in TDC compression when installing the stator or TDC exhaust? Does it matter?
