Measure the slack as per the service manual. Generally you want 1.2-1.4 inches of travel or so, but check the manual to be sure.

How many miles are on your current chain?

Do your sprockets look worn or hooked?

sounds to me, like you need to adjust your chain tension

Nothing of value comes easy, and nothing that's easy is of value.

I have a brand new bike with 800 miles on it and found the chain was not adjusted properly by the dealer after my first inspection and lube.

Definitely check the slack. I also like to check for any binding or abormal tight/loose spots.
