gen 3 chain and sprocket help

i just past from a dyno tune on a dyna pro dyno. i did 187.02 bhp on a stock engine but the chain was actually playing left and right on the dyno so we didnt push the bike for more.ill attach a photo of it, but i would like to ask what kind of chain and what gearing do you guys sugest the bike is gen3 zx10r. A lot will be saying its too much for a stock engine without cams and other mods, i have seen higher results on other dynos 5-6 hp, and once lower by 2hp in the past.

if your getting a new chain then really you should replace the sprockets as well if your doing that i recommend you go down to a 520 pitch it realise a little more power because there is a little less resistance also getting a aluminium hardened sprocket on the rear also releases a little more power because there is slightly less weight as long as you get a good quality hard chain i promise you wont regret it.

Those results look good nick. The optimal gearing will depend on your intentions.

I personally have a box of aluminum sprockets and use a 520 pitch. -1 +2 seems to work very well. On the longer tracks I'll use -1 or -1 +1. Good luck.
