Which chain brand?

It's time to replace the chain and I was wondering what chain brand to go with. I'm looking for something comparable to stock but then again, I haven't looked to see what the stock chain costs

I'm looking for a 520 chain for the 250.

EK, RK, DID are probably the top 3.
Look for a good quality X ring chain.

Over 14.6k for sure. I was cleaning the chain yesterday and noticed the chain would get tight in one section as I rotated it. Pretty sure it's from riding in the rain and not cleaning/lubing it asap.

I was just thinking I could get away with just reusing the old sprockets since they still look good.
