The best chain for the WRR?

Does anybody have strong feelings about the best chain for the Yamaha?

My last trip was a 2500 mile loop through Utah and Nevada from Phoenix. By the time I got back, my wheelbase was at least an inch longer than when I started due to all the adjustments. The last day required a chain adjustment every fuel load.

The rear sprocket shows the wear with hooked teeth. Haven't looked at the front yet. The bike has only about 9k miles on the clock, but plenty of sand sand time, and I probably didn't keep it clean enough. I probably damaged it early in its life too by letting it get so loose it would jump teeth.

I want to replace the sprockets and chain with a strong sealed O ring chain. It seems to me the chain should last about 15k miles. Any suggestions?
