what do you use to clean it and lube it? sometimes certain things like wd-40 can eat the o rings on chains...although it sounds like youre smart enough to know something like this. hmm do what str8 said and rotate the tire by hand, you should be able to tell where the tight spots are, and if there is a kinked link it would be noticeable, it will be angled just slightly different then the others. have you had this problem since you put the chain on or just accruing? could be that something like your sprocket nut is loose, i would double check that. maybe when you put the master link in you tightened it too much and bent a link doing that? lots of possibilities always check the simple things like loose hardware first.
oh and i like to double check my alignment by using a pair of calipers and measuring the distance from the back of the swing arm to the back of the axle alignment block
