A little rough

Hi all, when riding on asphalt streets, I notice when cruising the engine "feels" a little rough...sorta like riding a small bumps. But n notice when accelerating, and idles nicely. Any ideas?

Background work: replaced petock, cleaned carbs, tank had Seafoam, and did the 0.22 cent mod.

Thanks in advance!

Have a look at your drive chain... I'm willing to bet it has some tight spots!
