I read the service manual and the seems the bolt that holds the front sprocket is torqued to like 124 or so n-m!!! no way in hell i'd get it off with just a normal 1/2" ratchet huh? Maybe a breaker bar? or do i really need a impact driver??? btw choose which chain and sprocket set you like. And also mention the gearing i'm thinking 14/46? or maybe 14/45? lemme know!

How many ft-lbs is 124 N-m? I thought it was only like 60 ft-lbs :-\

EDIT: I just looked it up. It's only ~91 ft-lbs. You.... well, I have done that much with a regular 3/8" ratchet. But a cheater pipe or a full size torque wrench would break it loose and then retorque easily

front sprocket nut is 105 ft lbs.
i did is yesterday. i used an impact gun. you could probably use a rachet if you put a 2x4 in the rear wheel.

Regular aluminum sprockets (not hard anodized) are going to wear very quickly. So, I would go with either of the hard anodized sprockets. I wouldn't adjust the sprocket size either as I like it the way it is (you may not). AFAM has a good reputation, so that leaves #3 as the winner.
PS: I don't have personal experience with any of these products on the SV650.
