foot pegs and chain

I dont know much about motorcycle maintenance but I got a GSXR 750 that needs a new left footpeg (the one by the shifter) its broken off right in front of where it bolts to the lever. I see a lot around that look like they would fit, are they universal? If not should I get suzuki ones or aftermarket or what? a little advice would be appreciated.
Second the bike has 2 up sprockets on it (when I got it) and the chain is clicking (doesn't look like its been oiled in forever either) and a shop told me that if I change the chain I should change sprockets too because the chain wears the sprockets and if you put a new chain on used sprockets it can eat up the chain. Id kinda like to go back to stock ratio anyway. so is all that true? and if I do go back to stock ratio should get the aftermarket 120 chain or go with stock?

thanks for the help guys

For a street rider I would say to go back with stock equipment for the parts you are looking for. Give Patrick a call @ Motorcycles-Unlimited. 281-444-0545

He can work wonders for parts. I have heard of deals for stock sprockets laying around the shop and getting thrown in with a chain purchase. But, I have just heard of these things.
