the expensive parts is the two chain sliders, the rest are peanuts.

I changed my chain myself a few months ago (@ 180K Km) and the sliders,especially the big one, were in a terrible state. If you are installing the original closed-type chain you will have to open up the timing chain front cover ($$labour$$) anyway, so you can inspect the state of your sliders & decide.
