Chain/Sprocket Question for a CBR600RR 2005

It's time to change the sprockets.. and I thought I should also change the chain too while I'm at it. What kind of sprockets should I use in conjunction with the chain (teeth/link) wise? Any links to where I can just buy a set instead of buying them piece by piece?

Thanks in advanced!

Unless you are racing, I would buy stainless steel chain and sprockets. They are cheaper and will last a long time.

I would buy a 520 - 120 link with a -1 on front or a plus 3 in the back. Call Allan at Whoopies cycles, he can hook you up for cheap.

Sprockets are not stainless, but I would recommend staying with steel.
-1 on the front is a common change for the 600 and will give you a bit more acceleration at the cost of a slightly higher cruising rpm.
Your stock chain is a 525 so there"s no real gain going to a 520 except it will wear faster.because of the smaller rollers and plates. Stay 525 imo.
