Head replacement no start 2011 1000

Hey guys, I'm at a loss. I have a 2011 1000 with 61,000 miles and I just replaced the head due to a smoked valve. I got it all put back together and now she won't start. She is cranking, I can see and smell fuel in intake, and I'm getting spark. I had the whole engine out so obviously had everything disconnected. 98% certain my timing is right. Not the first time ive done it and I triple checked before putting the valve cover on. The manual has a bunch of mumbo jumbo about running a SDS on the throttle body after removal but I never removed it, just moved it out of the way. I did however disconnect the connectors. I'm not getting a light or anything either. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You need to be 100% sure timing is right.
Skip everything else and run a compression check. Double check valve clearances as well.

What light are you not getting? Do you have any reason to believe that your electrics aren't in full working order?
