Default chain and sprocket suggestions?

Hi All,
It's time for a new chain! Anyone have any suggestions as to which brands to buy or great economical chains and where to get them (aka - websites)?

Also, I'm a noob, so if anyone can clear up and provide me info for the benifits of changing my sprockets (-1t front, +2t back I believe) and/ or if it's worth it, I'd be much obliged!

I suggest hitting the search button, choosing the f4i forum, and searching titles only for chain. This is the most over asked, beat to death subject and theres hundreds of threads with info for you.

yea this was just asked recently, but either way...
the -1/+2 conversion gives you better low end acceleration, def worth it in my opinion. and i would def do sprockets and chain at the same time. i went with 525 because they last longer and i wasnt interested in shaving the weight, all i do is street riding.

mine was an RK chain with vortex sprockets. i found a kit where they came together online, and they cut to the right length for you so you dont have to mess with that. i believe it was called the QuickAcceleration kit or something, but just search ebay, or online stores for RK chain kit, vortex kit, etc. and you should be able to find it
