Oblong sprocket???

I have a tight spot in my chain. My chain will be loose and as I turn the back wheel it will get tight in one spot. I can actually hear it when I ride and I think it's affecting my bike's performance. Is it possible that I bought a sprocket that wasn't machined right? If I recall right, the bolts fit pretty tight where they mount so I don't think it is off-centered.

Ive had stretched chains before. watch out. if you have the chain too tight, then the tight parts become WAYYY too tight. next thing you know the chain will start popping teeth off of the sprocket. NOT GOOD! :confused1

dont wait until your screamin down the freeway and have the chain break, lock up your rear wheel and eat it before you decide to change it out. Good chains are very important

Just ask Prodigy how wheelies go wrong when your chain snaps.

At the track I loosened the bolts to see if there is anyway it could be mounted offset and there is no way possible it can be. I think it was just cut wrong.
