Default Replacing chain and sprockets - tools needed?

I'm in need of a new chain and sprockets for the SV, so any recommendations for a decent (but cheapish) chain and sprockets for an SV650 K6? Also what tools do I need to change it myself?

Thanks.

Well you asked what tools, so I assumed you'd be tackling this yourself

As for C&S, I bought http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SV650S-SV6...item4cf6dc86c8

Havent fitted yet but seems decent.

If tackling it myself means standing behind someone watching over their shoulder while they do it, then yeh I will be Thanks for the link, cheaper than I thought it would be.
