Do  you mean the engine won't turn over when using the kickstarter? If so, it sounds like something is wrong with the kickstarter. When you say you torqued the bolts in a criss cross pattern, aren't you describing the cylinder head, not the valve cover? Did you install the camshaft correctly?

There's a plunger and spring under the chain side of the cam. If you removed the cam and wasn't aware of those parts and they came out and got lost, the bike will not start without them being installed.
