New Vibration

Hey guy I just changed my sprockets and chain to a 520 -1/+2. WOW what a difference! But now I notice a bit of vibration that I hadn't noticed before at around 50mph. Is this normal with aftermarket sprockets? I may just be paranoid but it just doesn't feel right. Any Ideas?

Sounds like you have an alignment issue.

I was going to check that again. I was having a heck of a time measuring both sides the same way because of the swing arm mounted plate. I planned on removing the plate bracket and setting the alignment and then reinstalling the bracket after I have the tensioner set.

Thanks!
