All standard parts (Fury is a powerspline BB), go and buy the parts that suite your budget.

Parktools will tell you how to fit them, you'll need a powerspline compatable crank puller.

Cheap but good?
Deore cassette for £15
KMC X9 73 chain (with link) for £11
not sure what BB you have - so can't help with that
Always get my pads from Superstars - packs of 4 £18-£25 depending on whether you want organic, sintered or kevlar - all are good

I would say, don't spend money on that crankset- it's a brilliant bike, that Fury and one of the ways they made it so good was by saving money on disposable bits. But the BBs wear stupidly fast. Deore at £50 with all new rings makes more sense to me than £15 for a short-lived BB and £20 for a big chainring. It will be a slight upgrade but also will save you money in the long run.

Cassette- any shimano one is decent, the expensive ones can shift slightly better but it's mostly just weight. Spend as much or as little as you want.

Chain- second Bartimeous, X9-73 or X9-93 are great value.

Likewise pads- Superstar kevlar are the best allrounders I've used, at a silly price.

The Powerspline off my mates Banshee lasted ages, same spec as the one on the fury, but yes a Deore HT2 is a usefull weight saving for not much more money if you buy everything new, however chainrings can be had for pennies used.

They are a universal fit. Though you'd want 42/32/24 chainsrings.

You'll just want to measure the bb shell to see if its 68mm or 73mm. The bb can cope with either size, but spacers are needed (and included).
