It's more about rotational mass. Patrick could prob explain it better but. The weight you save on drive components is multiplied as rotating mass * Less rotating weight improves acceleration.

The very minor amount of reduction in mass at the center of the wheel is inconsequential, especially for a street bike. Also the wear difference between aluminum and steel is not worth it.

just got a RK kit (w/ steel sprocket, comes with 20k miles warranty). through cycle gear (59 @ Bellaire),

cycle gear does price match.

Rk chain comes with rivet master link, also if you get the kit for your bike, the chain should be cut to the right links, it would save you sometime from griding off the rivet on your new chain...
