1. You might simply want to back off the high limit screw on the FDR and see if it has enough travel to reach the additional distance.
2. You might also want to shift to a "middle" cog on the rear and "eyeball" your chain line to see if it seems "reasonable". Look at it with the chain on either front ring and see if they "match".

IF it's a tiny bit on the "short side", that would be helpful. "Long side" not.
