Sprocket help and cranks

Had my Primo sprocket installed and when you pedal it's not rotating evenly .

Had this issue with my Vent Guard sprocket but my shop just didn't have it flush enough on the spindle . When the guy this time went to put it on , same thing happened . Adapter was on , it was aligned with the chain , everything seemed fine , but it still had the slightest wiggle . It wasn't happening before I switched my sprocket . Any reason why it is now ? The usual "haven't seen this before" was brought up . My crank bolt is bent actually , so I metioned maybe the clamping force isn't even and that's why it's not rotating on its centre . Any ideas ?

I've made a crank thread before , but I'm going to buy a pair as soon as I get some bills paid off / debt . I saw the Cult Hawk cranks in person and they look really good but only 175 as far as I know . Anyone think they'd make them in 170 at least ?

I've had my eye on BSD Substance cranks in 165 for a while but they're not going to be available for a while where I live ( Distro and sites / shops all out ) . I thought about Animal cranks because they make 165 and they're an actual 3 piece design which I really like , plus it comes with the crank tool and grease , which is nice considering with my current Premium cranks I usually need to go into a shop because of the hole / bossless design or whatever the fuck . The thing is Animal cranks go up to 360$ ( can probably get for 300$ before taxes and shipping off Transition or maybe get a discount from my local shop ) here while the BSD ones if I wait would be 200$ off 3ride when they get them in . Anyone have any ideas or suggestions ?

Probably the clamp bolt. Maybe it's tightened in all the way so that it's bending the sprocket with it since the bolt isn't perfectly straight?

Hmmhn you're probably right I didn't think of that . I'm not sure if loosening it a tad will help as the crank bolt is already a pain but I can see later

Sprocket bolts don't need to be tightened down at all as long as cranks are tight. Leave a small gap and see if it improves.
