It is normal for your new front sprocket to "whine" more than the stock one did, because the stock sprocket had a rubber damper on it that made it quieter. Most sprockets from other manufacturers don't have a damper, and they supposedly have less friction as a result, but also are a little noisier as well. I kinda like the way my new Vortex front sprocket purrs! =o)
