Sounds like you chain is binding on one of the sprockets. Could be that your rear wheel is not straight. The hash marks on the swingarm aren't accurate on these bikes. Get a chain alignment gauge to see if your chainline is straight. I guess it could also be a stiff link. I'm just shooting in the dark here, but two things I'd look at.

Edit: Additionally, how much slack is in your chain. If it's worn too bad, it could have a tight spot in the chain. Check chain slack, turn the wheel a bit, check again. Repeat several times to see if you have a tight spot.
