I can get you a chain and sprocket set for much less than $200.00.
As far as a battery I'd go with a Parts Unlimited battery, they're very affordable and have a one year warranty.
FWIW I'd be very cautious with a lower CCA battery. They can cause everything from charging system to ECU issues.

hey yall. im working at a dealer in Va beach these days...

we sell the out of bikemaster trugel batteries out here. (distributed by Tucker Rocky)

-TWO year warranty!
-factory sealed, GEL, maintenance free replacements even for batteries that are traditional acid batteries.
-come charged and ready to go out of the box. drop in, bolt on and ride into the sunset!
-most of the ones we sell we have priced at $5 less than the Yuasa equivalents.

being the same price or less, but with some obvious perks and convienance, and the best battery warranty ive seen makes them an easy sell.

(that being said, i still put Parts unlimited brand batteries in my own bikes. like Patrick said quality is good, price is good, and with my employee discount i pay peanuts for batteries.)

but if i didnt get a discount, i might very well go for the two year warranty bikemaster trugel. just wanted to share in case someone wanted to try something new. i like turning people onto new and better stuff.
