Not a peep. No bark, non-ignition. Looked at valve timing, ignition set-up; workshop manual settings were followed … And still no chirp. Here it sits in Deans garage with big brother Bonneville sitting nearby.

I took the cylinder head off and perhaps the valve seats have exceeded recess allowance so the rocker arms bind against the valve spring collar perhaps keeping a peep of valve open and hence zero cylinder compression…
