Should have went back in just like before unless you moved any shims on the secondary, if you want to double check your alignment you need to get an alignment bar. Your going to get a little engine movement when you hit the throttle, the engine sits on rubber dampners. If it seems like a lot you might want to check into it

Adjust the stock motor stop bumper snug up against the motor with NO gap, this is a tip straight from the GOD of XC knoledge known as POCKETS over on HCS, I run mine tight on my 98 with a SLP torque arm and have not blown a belt or broke a motor mount in years, I don't have a torque arm on our 99 but also run the torque stop tight and run it HARD on asphalt and have had no problems for the past 2 seasons, if you can afford to get the slp torque arm for the front clutch side it is a great investment and holds the motor in place and will help prolong belt life and overall efficiency.

Idle RPM should be 1600 + or - 200 so your pretty close, you may have to adjust the idle once the cold weather comes around but I always shoot for a 1600 rpm idle and the 700 twins seem happy there.

so 2200 could be a bit much but 1800 should be fine..altho it is warm whether also right now but
