New sprockets and chain

I have had excellent results with Sprocket Specialists 
( You need a #607 front sprocket and a #292 
rear. Steel sprockets will cost you $25 and $38 respectively. You can get 
the front sprocket in 16, 17(stock) or 18 teeth. If you haven't tried it, I 
would suggest the 18t front with a 45t (stock) rear sprocket. This is the 
gearing the bike should have come with from the factory. It really makes the 
bike shine in it's intended purpose, effortless high speed cruising. As for 
the chain, DID is the best you can buy. The 530VM is a reasonably priced OEM 
replacement that is much better than OEM. You can find them for around $110.
