Ltr 450 starting hard

I have a 2006 ltr 450 that started starting hard I thought it might have been the valves so I took it to a Honda shop (there are not Suzuki shop anywhere near me)so they could adjust them they said it had jumped time and didn’t want to put a timing chain on it. The bike ran when I took it to the shop and got it back in a box. I took the bike home tore it down replaced the timing chain. Set the timing marks and still has the same problem if not worse. Starts really hard not sure if my timing is still off or what.

1. Check spark plug
2. Fuel pump
3. Injector
4. Coil
5. Regulator
6. Or maybe piston rings (compression)

If the timing had jumped which I doubt it, it most likely would of bent the exhaust valves.

If the timing marks are dead on the cam may have spun on the gear.

Check the compression, the specks are in the manual.
