Chain size?

Hey guys,
So i have noticed that my chain has a few loose and tight sections and is starting to chew threw my sprockets (which is reasonable after 20,000kms). My question to you is;

What size chain should i order considering I have a 15T on the front and standard on the rear? Ive heard that it should be 520 pitch, but im confused as the the number of links i should get?

The stock chain will work with a 15 tooth countershaft sprocket.

Stock chain length is 106 links.

"520" means 5/8 inch pitch and 2/8 inch width. Yes, they never metrified chain sizes, why re-invent the wheel?

Hi! This was helpful.
Will it work if I go to a 40t in the rear?
As in, Will the standard chain still fit with 15t/40t
