What is your experience level with wrenching?
Its very easy with the proper tools, space, and info. Some cheap Walmart towels and aluminum foil (on exhaust pipes) will help contain the mess. I also use a $0.98 measuring cup to measure oil going back into the bike. If you plan to keep changing the oil yourself, consider a Fumoto valve to replace the drain plug, it will make future changes extra easy and less messy.
Only thing you could really get wrong is over-torquing the drain plug. Go for it! Its a great way to control your ownership costs and get to know the bike.
