Piston, spark plug, make sure your valves are in good shape, valve stem seals, check the crank(it should be good unless you rag your bike), and put it all back together with all new gaskets and you'll be dialed.

Not trying to be a dick, but are you 100% positive you refilled it with oil? It's easy to get distracted sometimes

All of the fuses are good. It is getting power to the solenoid, but it's not transferring it to the starter. I have replaced the solenoid with a new one and same result. I'm leaning towards the capacitor

I'm not saying it's a bad thing, but with a smaller company, especially one like TLR that knows his stuff, he will be able to move the power around to your liking and would be a little more willing to work with you personally.
Added reply in a thread Who is a reputable KX450F cyl head porter....? 3/21/2016 5:05 AM
IMO, a good company like Race Tech or TLR. Also, Proven moto builds great motors that a lot of teams run. There are tons of options. I have found that working with a smaller motor builder instead of a big company like pro circuit, you get better results. ... more »

Order new guides and use a valve guide driver to drive it in while the head is approx 200 degrees. If you use a press, it will probably do some kind of damage. And on top of that, you don't want to risk it coming back out. It came out for a reason, valve ... more »
