2006 Yamaha R1

new chain and sprocket opinion

I was wanting to get opinions on chains and sprockets. It's about that time for me to change them on my '06 R1. I've gotten the opinions of some reputable dealers and they seem to push the Driven and EK brands. I know Driven makes good products and are probabaly underrated for how good they really are but are they really that much better than brands like AFAM or Renthal or is it just price? I also keep getting told that the DID ERV3 chain is designed for 750cc bikes but keeps getting listed for my bike. I just want to get the opinions of people who have used theses brands and what they recommend.
