Tore the rear case off to replace a busted tensioner. Put in a new stator, water pump seal and new chain while I was in there.

Surprisingly, the bike is running much more quietly. Almost too quietly, like perhaps it's not exhausting properly? Maybe it's all in my head and I should go for a test ride? Anyone else experience this?

Kinda unrelated, it also now won't crank with the ignition switch, but will turn over by jumping the solenoid. Already ordered a new one but perhaps I need to adjust the clutch sensor

It may just be that your cam timing is no longer retarded and that may change the exhaust note.

My bikes with Raesans change their note when the ignition advance settings are changed too.
