I can't comment on your timing chain.
But as a biker its very common to have a 'tight spot' on a chain.
its noticable when checking the chain slack [important on a bike]
there are tolerances allowed.
But I'd guess that if its that noticable on your timing that I'd replace it.
Plenty of folk here will give better advice than mine ;-)

If the the sprockets haven't been aligned properly, by adding or removing shims from the crankshaft then this can cause the chain to run tight.
