This is more rider preference than anything. If you are looking for more bottom end, or faster acceleration there are a few changes you can make.
Chain - Going with the 520 chain will be lighter than a 525 and 530. With a 600cc bike it is still safe to use and will lighten the load on the engine.
Gearing - If you are looking for a subtle change, go up 1 or 2 teeth on the rear sprocket from the stock tooth count. If you are looking for more of a drastic change, you could go down 1 tooth from stock on the front sprocket. Changing 1 tooth on the front is about equal to changing 3 on the rear.
