It is actually easy, at least after
the first time you change it.
However, that being said -- you just might want to take it to the shop (the first time) and make sure they let you watch. Then you're good to go for the rest of your motorcycle life.
Also, some shops actually charge more than $55 to change oil, believe it or not. And by the time you're finished getting an oil drain pan, funnel, oil (especially synthetic) you're gonna be up to around $55 anyway -- the first time. And while it's in the shop (if that's the way you decide to go) have them point out some general maintenance tips for your bike. They should be happy to do so. (Famous last words.)
