Suzuki has used both brands for OE, either one is a very good chain. I'm not personally familiar with the screw type master link, and would recommend the rivet.
The alignment tool is unnecessary. Just measure from swing arm pivot to rear axle and get each side equal. Afterwards, you can note the marks on the adjuster plates to see if they are even, (or take note of how far off they are), and use that for future reference if you want.
You didn't mention sprockets, but it is highly recommended to replace both sprockets at the same time as the chain.
Denniskirk.com has chain and sprocket kit, includes rivet master link, both RK and DID brand. Stock sprocket sizes, 118 link chain, no cutting required. I like these for being a matched set in one package, no guesswork. I once ordered chain and sprockets separately and got mis matched sizes.
