Just finished up a little guide to tightening the chain on my 75 CB200. Advice from any moto yodas is more than welcome! I'm a bit intimidated to take the next step of swapping the sprockets and chain. Can anybody recommend a US source for the sprockets (I have a replacement chain already) and specialized tools? Thanks as usual, this community is so much more pleasant than some others out there on the 'net. :D

FWIW, I don't trust the index marks, without verifying they are true. Carefully measure from the center of the axle to the center of the swing arm pivot bolt, on both sides; the measurements should be exactly equal. If not, note the difference, and make a note of which is different, so you can compensate.
Also, standard cotter pins eventually fail; I use one of these, from my local HW store: https://www.pivotpins.com/products/bs-hair-pin-cotters.html
