Default replacing my sprockets

Hi
I need to replace my chain and sprocket on my 98post 750 Kat.
I'm going to put on 530 sprockets and chain. I want to keep the stock number of teeth for the front but I don't know how many teeth the front sprocket should be and how long should the chain be.
My wife already bought me the 530 rear sprocket for the bike as a valentines day present.

Any help would be accepted.

15t front. 45t rear. If i remember right.

116 link chain I believe is actual OEM size, but I'd recommend (same price) buy a 120 link chain and you don't need to worry about it. It's a common step of the instal process to cut the chain down to actual needed size.

Front and rear sprocket tooth count has a direct effect on the chain length. So knowing what the tooth count rear sprocket is would be necessary for adjusting the length of the chain.

The rear sprocket that my wife purchased for me is a 43t. So if a 15t front and the 43t rear would a 120 link chain still work?

Fyi in case you aren't aware, you're going to be removing some low end grunt with that sprocket. Not much. I intentionally did that on my 600 to lower freeway cruising rpms.
