Default chain and sprockets

hey guys,

im up for a new chain and sprockets

long to spend around the $200aud for everything(i will install)

what brand etc have worked, i have heard about the harded style lasting around 60 000 - 100 000 ks, as i am a cheapy i would like them to last a long time.

i am planing to run 14-46 sprockets, thoughts on this, im running 14-49 and would like some more road friendly gearing.

thanks in advance

I used a 108 link D.I.D. premium chain (~$100) and a 46 tooth JT Sprocket rear (~$35).

14/46 gearing works well. I run about 500RPM more in top gear for any given road speed (at least in the mid-range ) and have more power for sand and hard starts off road.

Buy a 13 and 15 tooth front and you can run stock ratios to really low offroad gearing.

would love to go for the chain gang but the sprockets are way to expensive, really good, but out of the budget.

If you guys had to say,

Best combo for strictly offroad:?

Best combo for strictly on road:?

Best combo for mixture of both:?

Best for mostly on road with a little bit of off road:?

Basically I want to know what to run if I want the bike to be as quick as possible out of the hole and then what to run if I want good top end speed. I have a 351 kit on the way so keep that in mind.
