Sticky Tranny 2001 GSX-R 600

Starting this morning, the transmission on my 2001 GSX-R 600 has started to get a little sticky - what I mean by this is that when I upshift or downshift it takes longer than usual for the gear to get in place. It happens a lot more obviously on the downshifts, I'll shift down and it takes longer than usual for the gear to catch. Any suggestions as to why this can be happening?
Thanks in advance for the help...

How is your clutch cable adjustment? When was the last time you had an oil change?

My clutch engages and disengages the engine fine and my oil was changed 300 miles ago. And my upshifts are less problematic than my downshifts but both are hard to do. If I'm in 3rd and coming to a stop, I'll go down to 2nd and then try to go down to first, but the shift lever will be soft initially, I have to wait until I hear the gear click into place and then I know I can shift down. I have never had this problem since I've owned the bike (past year) so I know it's not normal.

Check and adjust your clutch pushrod freeplay.
When you changed your oil did you use a good quality motorcycles specific oil?
Also, what condition is your chain in? Is it lubed and adjusted properly?
Does it have any tight spots?

My chain is in horrible condition, it's a little rusty (I'm in Chicago and with all that salt on the road...) It also seems loose, but I don't know how to tighten it up. But yeah, the oil is Golden Spectra semisynthetic and looks good to me. Could the chain cause a problem like the one I'm describing?
