They all do that sir.......I sometimes cut a couple of mm off the end off the 'rose' joint thread.
It will bed in fairly quickly, so dont panic too much.

I've had to tighten the adjustment on my FS as the belt was slipping on fast acceleration. :o
Done 15,000 miles so it's well stretched.
Adrenalin Moto suggested a new spring should be fitted.
Christmas shopping. :)
