Buy the heaviest duty 530 Z ring chain you can afford with steel sprockets for longevity.
Since you just back into it, maybe stock gearing is best until the 51's power becomes manageable with your skill set, then change for more of the same. Just added a Tuturo chain oiler system to my SP2 that still has original chain and gearing with approximately 7500 miles. Also don't trust markings on swingarm for alignment, try a Pro-aligner, it works well.
Enjoy the corner carver.
Check brake calipers for free movement when installing new brake components. Clean the brake caliper pistons when extended out as far as they should go to ensure trouble-free use.
