Get a new chain.....you can't fix it your chain is stretched .....mine does that to I usually don't give a shit until it snaps then replace it

I think it's just a loose spot or the sprocket is warped i have no clue but it depends on how loose it is. But if it isn't that loose don't worry about it.

your chain is either stretched or your sprocket is bent.

Chain tensioners work great for this issue, and their pretty cheap to pick up too, if that doesnt fix it though your chain is stretched and likely to snap soon.

i know the sprockets not bent, so the chains probably just stretched. thanks!
