Go to Advantage cycle and get the D.I.D. 3/4 chain. Hell while you got it apart might as well install the DRZe kit they have as well.

It uses the DRZ400 (dirt bike version) Base gasket to bump the compression from 11.5 to 12:1. As well as the dual valve spring set up to accommodate the extra compression. As well as the heavier strength 3/4 Pitch timing chain vs. the 2/3 pitch that comes in the Z/KFX/DVX400.

do you have to mod any of the engine parts to make the 3/4 chain work

No, Completely bolt on. If you get the yoshimura 4/5 chain then machine work is in order.
