I always try to replace as a set, so my opinion would be that now is a good opportunity to get a decent chain on that thing. I can’t believe the stock chain is still on your bike. Mine lasted about two hours.

I guess I momentarily forgot where I was, as I normally lurk over on the YZ side reading about YZs, which is what I have. The stock chains on these for whatever reason don’t last nearly as long as the ones on WRs (which, in ’01 anyway, are of the o-ring variety).
But a good quality o-ring chain like RK, DID or Regina is a good investment IMO and will make the sprockets you buy last longer. You get what you pay for, and if you take care of it a good $80 or $90 dollar chain will last 50 hours, prolonging the life of your sprockets as well.
