It sounds like a slack primary chain to me. As it smooths out when reved.

Yes absolutely if the bike has been standing for some time clean out the primary case and the tensioners as they can stick and need cleaning and priming with clean oil to tension correctly. Make sure you clean the magnets properly while there too.
