standard is what most people use, I would say check the FAQ.

Yeah standard here, I found a OEM C&S set on Ebay when I needed to replace mine. I've never felt the need to play around with sprocket sizes, the standard setup works well for my needs. Pat has played around with sprocket sizes to make the bike more responsive at the speeds he rides and has some good info on his site for 15 tooth front and 47 tooth rear - https://www.cartestsoftware.com/fz1/.

I went for DID gold X Ring chain and standard gearing with JT sprockets.

Present set up is gold DID X ring chain, Ognibene front with the dampener and a black Afam on the rear. Previous replacement was the same except for genuine Yamaha front sprocket, which was stupidly expensive.
