Anything out there thats better then OEM for a timing chain?
I see Wisco, Pro-X and some others make them.

Also, comments on Kibblewhite Black Diamond vs White Diamond SS valves?

OEM chain is probably the best bet. If you ride a lot, it only needs to be replaced every couple of years. OEM is almost always the best engineered components. As for the valves, I stick with OEM too, so I don't have an opinion on them.

I'm going to say for me, every 2 years MINIMUM. Mine was on it's 3rd season, and I did very little riding this year as compared to norm, and that chain was beyond whipped, and ended up with bent valves, but could have ended up with a complete junk pile...:)
