I'm ordering OEM parts tomorrow as a faulty cam tensioner put the bike in the shop ( )...
I'm wondering if I should look into upgrading anything, the cam chains, or anything else I should be doing while she's opened up...I would have considered hotcams, but I don't need more top end, and my main focus is on reliability and longevity, over performance (this bike already RIPS)...

Any recommendations?

The OEM cam chain is fine, and will be at least equal to any replacement you might find for it. Just put it back together with genuine Yamaha stuff, and you'll be fine.
