OEM chain/sprocket set up

i have searched quite a bit and still dont have a very good answer to this so i decided to ask..

im changing out my chain and sprocket next week and i want to stick with stock gearing, what brand of chain/sprocket should i go with? so far all ive seen is vortex (which is what i originally planned on going with) is really crappy and wears extremely quickly. i havnt seen any negative or possitive on RK stuff, is this any good? also can someone tell me what the stock specks are for the chain and gearing?
all help is apreciated!

Driven sprockets and EK chains seem to be the popular choice around here.

Check out motomummy or sportbiketrackgear.

Also can't tell the the stock specs for your bike unless we know the year.

I have a Driven setup myself with no complaints. MM and SBTG both have some good deals.

Also wondering if there is a cheaper alternative to buying the chain break and riveting tool?

I use a grinder to cut the chain, no alternative to the riveting tool :\
We have a Harbor Freight in the area with a cheap riveting tool good enough for about one use, most people just return it and get another one though.

I just borrowed one from a local shop. Some places might charge you to rent one.

ok so i actually made a rivetting tool. you guys will think im some sort of mechanical redneck genious when you see it (ill post pics later) but i have another question that may or may not be to nooby. my new chain set up is quite a bit to long..is this normal? and do i just grind on of the rivits off to make it the correct length? and how many links is the stock chain supposed to have? and yes i know i could count my old chain but the old chain was aftermarket so im not sure if it will be stock length either.. also id like to vent about the squid that owned this machine before me.. obviously cleaning 4 inches of caked on grime and oil wasnt part of his maintenance routine and i spent 4 hours, 3 old toothbrushes, 15 shop rags, 2 cans of heavy duty engine degreaser, 1 bottle of glass cleaner and 1 can of brake cleaner cleaning this thing and its still no where near clean!! :@ but yeah if someone could answer m chain length question id appreciate it

What if I had to go up 1 in the rear? That shouldnt effect the link count right? I know my speedo will be off by like 2% oohh nooo ... they ran out of the stock rear so I got 1 up

112 should still be good.
