I checked it after a washing, and the slack was perfect, so it must have been hot when I checked it at a red light, so I left it be. Alignment ruined my last chain so this one has been a straight four times! (can't say triple checked) I heard it again today but faintly, so it must just be a new sound for me. Runs so smooth I can't bring myself to think I have a problem, I'll just have to see if it gets any worse. Thanks.

Do you still have a whine with your bike? I recently did the sprockets and chain on mine and I'm having a whine that is noticeable at about 5500 rpm and over 40mph.

:edit: Now that I've done some searching, it looks like whining after changing to aftermarket sprockets is a common problem across all brands. Learn something new erryday. I guess that means it's not a serious cause for concern?

There is a sprocket whine still present on mine. Sounds cool. Some lube makes it quieter. The other whine I was hearing was solved after changing the oil since none was showing up on my dipstick.........
