I can hear it put more stress on the motor than it should when I brake the rear wheel hard (on the stand), due to excessive vibration. I should've known not to trust the guy who mounted it. It was some kid, couldn't have been more than 16 or so, whom I could tell hadn't been on the job long . Gonna take it back to the shop and demand somebody else in the shop, hopefully with much more experience, re-do it. If that doesn't work, I'll find an actual MC shop, and take it to them. And then I'll have learned my lesson, hopefully.
