2010 cbr1000rr noise

I had the rear tire replaced a few days ago and I put the rear tire back on and rode it today and everything was fine. I came home and cleaned the chain and went riding. On this ride I could hear a humming type noise the whole time. I rode about 20 miles and I kept hearing the sound. Any ideas about what it could be.

Chain too tight? Missed a wheel spacer reassembling?

Look closely at the little teeth on your swing arm where your chain adjusters sit, is your chain positioned evenly on both sides of the axle?

The adjusters should be resting on the same tooth/indicator on each side of the axle.

How dirty was the chain before cleaning it? When was the last time you cleaned and lubed it? Maybe its the normal sound of a nice cleaned and lubed chain

I did lube the chain. And I cleaned it about 400 miles ago. I have just never taken the wheel off before myself so Im pretty sure it has something to do with the chain alignment. If I cant fix it then im taking it in. Thank for warranty.
