Welcome to the forum Craig
Did you up the idle rpms to 900rpm? That is about the minimum as there is more drag with the higher output alternators.
Did you put in a Compufire? Or what brand?
Did you upgrade the battery to an AGM type battery? If not you will boil out the acid in a wet cell battery, causing much damage that you do not want to deal with. Brake lines will fail from the acid as well as the frame paint will be ate away.

If your vented battery is still in good shape don't fall for the FUD "Fear, Uncertainty Doubt" spread by Compufire.
Nothing bad will happen so just use it until it needs replacing.
By all means when it comes time to replace it consider an AGM.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

Did you put the new dampers in correctly?
What did the noise sound like? New alternator with bad bearing? If the guy at the alternator shop rides a wing, he's got to be a good guy. Take it back and let him check it out. Good Luck
