Dude, I have the same problem. Have had it for over a year now. The tension on the chain changes as you rotate the wheel from too loose, to super tight w/ no slack at all. It's not as bad when you put a new chain on, but as it stretches it gets worse.
So far, I've replaced the sprockets with new oem, new oem DID chain.. That didn't work, so I replaced it with a 520 driven kit, -1 +2, EK Mvxz chain. I rode it around but the EK chain stretched and got so bad I had to buy another chain.. This time, went with a DID 520 chain. Same problem.
I've replaced the rear hub, rim, and cush drive. I've taken it to a shop, and also had my buddies look at it. Nobody can figure it out. It's so frustrating. I don't know what else is left to do.. I've spent over a grand trying to fix this issue, to no avail.
I am leary of going on longer trips or rides far from the house because it gets so bad and I constantly have to adjust the chain once it stretches. So fed up with this issue.. Kinda glad I'm not the only one..
