For the past 2 weeks I've been feeling and hearing a pulsating or clicking while riding. I decided to do a chain cleaning today, and I believe I may have found the potential source of the problem. I don't know what it could be though. When spinning the wheel with my hand there seems to be resistance when approaching the "click". Please watch the video I've included. Could anyone help me with this issue? Thanks

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.
Thank you for your response! I'll check that out.
