Few q's about chain

I know you can't diagnose over a forum very well. But here's my dilemma. I work more than I have a chance to work on the bike. Which at the moment I have a list of cutting my yoshi, repairing rectifier, fixing coolant leak and this.
It's sometimes helpful to get my ideas out and y'all's in so the limited time I have to work on bike can be better spent.

After getting my bike back from being stolen, I replaced a few things noticed the chain was loose. Tightened it and aligned it.
Now my first test ride I could hear something just wasn't right around the rear, it sound like the chain was hitting, grinding or stiff when taking off from a dead stop. Today while I was teaching a friend how to ride, well not ride but sit on it and release clutch and slowly move, I noticed the chain coming off the top of the sprocket seemed to come off rough and bounce as if the sprocket wasn't in line with the chain.

Now I haven't had time to look at it as I was soon after busy inspecting coolant hoses and rectifier.

I know wjen I tightened the chain I aligned the wheel according to the marks on the swing arm. I haven't had a chance to inspect it for alignment since, but does anyone have any ideas as to why the chain isn't playing well with the sprocket?

TL;DR
CLIFFS
BIKE STOLEN
BIKE RECOVERED
CHAIN NOISE
CHAIN LOOKS FUNNY ROLLING OFF SPROKet

If it were me I'd probably replace the chain and sprockets. Who knows what those thieves did to your bike.

Oh I hear you and plan on it. I just have quite a list. I believe new back tire is in order first. I really should check sprockets for wear.
