Chain Twist

I've bought RK Chain 520 conversion with vortex 16t front and vortex 41 t rear sprockets. I got everything installed and torqued/adjusted according to specs in shop manual.

The rear tire is evenly adjusted according to the marks on the adjusters.

When I spin the wheel, it spins easily but when I looked at the chain while I spin the wheel, it almost looks like there is a slight twist *chain looks like it slants abit to the left*.

Is it possible that I was too rough when I was removing the links and twisted it? If I did happen to slightly twist the chain, will it even out after riding for a while or should I buy a new one?

I need opinions please before I decide to ride or wait and buy a new chain.

Thanks guys
