I bought my chain and sprockets from the guy that sells on e-bay. He has everything you need for the chain department.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Beware of Dirtparts on eBay. He screwed me over. Good prices but their business practices sucks. They lost my business forever.

How many miles on your current chain?
I mean, the factory chain is a quality part, and I've been trusting mine on 500 mile days with no issues. I'll replace it when the sprockets and the chain are getting close to the end of their life.

I'm closing in on 11K on my factory set, and they look fine..
5000 mile on a factory chain/sprocket set will be fine.

A little lube and occasional adjustment and you'll be fine... Occasional adjustment is maybe every 3K? The chain will stretch a bit in that first 1K, and then it'll settle in.
