Default new chain needed

OK guys/gals. My chain is pretty much to its extent and Here soon I'm going to need to buy a new one. I've been asking around and of course I always get multiple answers. I'm looking to buy a chain, but I don't know what brand to really go with. I could use some help. I know would help but my computer has been screwy and every time I try to search something it winds up using a different search engine or takes me to random pages..

so I should just go to the dealer and buy it? or should I look online? I don't know anything about the brands or anything else for that matter.

IVe had good luck with dealer OEM although they can be a little expensive, but really to me if the stock chain will last me 10-15k miles or more witout breaking, id trust buying another one Vs a tiawan crap steel so called name brand. like i said just my opinion. other people im sure have their own preferences also.Guys who race im sure know what the best chain there is. Dont forget to replace both sprockets with the chain or its gonna chew itself up in a short time. I had a cheaper aftermarket chain break in less than 1200 miles and wrapped up in the rear wheel and locked up,same things with my 450R quad, been using OEM again ever since.
although RK has done very well for me on the quad and my old 250 ninja that i beat to death daily.
