so i finally got the bike running.
problems: intake cam was on the wrong keyway, carb had 2 pilot jets, and the boyer plate was static timed to the wrong hole. and the battery issue to boot. ALL were dumb mistakes. but she fires on one kick and settles into a nice idle instantly. sounds good too. video soon. super stoked.
