What do you mean by a tight spot?

I trust the the rear wheel has been pulled back evenly, and is running true?

If so, check this bolt..



I found mine had worked loose, causing the engine to twist and making the chain tighten then slacken. It looked like the chain lube had eaten away at the nylon, causing the locknut to fail.

As an afterthought, you have got the correct size chain? I think it should be a 420, but cant be certain.
